Tile Removal Melbourne
If you have a tiled floor and would like to replace it with concrete flooring, you will first need to remove the tiles.
There are various methods of removing a tiled floor, but we recommend working with a professional to save you time, money and to ensure the job is performed safely.
We use specialised tools and techniques to remove tiles quickly while minimising dust and impact on the floor surface below.
Removing Tile Floors
We can remove a wide variety of tiles, including ceramic, granite, mosaic, terracotta, terrazzo, porcelain, marble, slate, and sandstone from various surfaces in residential, commercial, and industrial locations across Melbourne.
Our process involves 6 steps:
- Assessment: Assessing the size and condition of your floor and gaining an understanding of the concrete flooring style you wish to replace it with.
- Tile removal: Depending on the scope, we will use specialist equipment including angle grinders, demolition hammers, rotary hammers, walk-behind equipment, specialised HEPA vacuums, jackhammers, and power scrapers.
- Adhesive removal: Once your tiles have been removed, we then remove any adhesives, bonding agents or glues left behind.
- Subfloor removal: If you live in a multi-story home, or your home has a basement, there may be a subfloor to remove.
- Diamond grinding: When tiles and adhesives have been removed, you will notice stains and dirt underneath. Diamond grinding removes any discoloration or dirt.
- Dust removal: It’s then time to bring in the HVAC and remove any remaining dust. This will make the surface beneath the original tile floor ready for your new concrete flooring.
Tile Removal Cost
The cost of tile flooring removal will depend on many factors, including the size of your floor, the location of your home or business, the kind of tiles to be removed, and the glue or adhesive used.
However, flooring removal typically starts at around $3 per square foot.
