Re: 1930s flooring removal HELP
Our home was built in 1923, and we had very modern 12"x12" white tiles on the bathroom floor. When I looked from the basement, I was able to tell they were "beefed up". When we remodeled the bathroom, on of the first things I did was to get a bid for replacing the floor with the old six-sided tiles; small tiles! Especially since this bathroom is only 6 by 5 feet, including the tub! The contractor had said he could get to the the concrete floor for me and it would run well over $700.00! With that I got an old wood chisel out and got oun my hands and knees. I spent about a week removing the large tiles and what seemed to be roofing paper and roofing cement on the original foor; which is what I always wanted; six sided tiles in a mix of white and blue. Goof Off and Dawn are great products to use to remove the tar backing. Hard work has paid off!
