Removing ceramic tile
We have a small patch of ceramic tile in our front entry adjacent to the living room(about 6' x 6')that we would like to remove in order to install new wood flooring throughout entire living room/ entry way. We have a 1954 house and my best guess is that the subfloors are original. The tile was installed by a previous owner about 4 yrs ago and was done on cement board which was then cemented and screwed to the subfloor. My question is how much trouble will this small patch be to remove given how it was installed? Are we going to end up damaging the subfloors and therefore need to replace that area? Anyone have advice on the best way to go about this? We dont own many power tools and unless it is too labor intensive I would rather not rent power tools to remove such a small area. Just trying to figure out if it will be more trouble than it is worth....Thanks!
