Underneath most flooring is a concrete slab. And, if the type of flooring on a concrete subflooring is tile, thinset is used to hold the slab of concrete and tile together. Part of the tile removing process must be to remove this layer of thinset. Otherwise, the subflooring may not be equalized and new flooring is installed off kilter. While you can certainly attempt to remove this thinset yourself, hammering away with nail and chisel, you can also have the whole flooring removed in one simple process.
Professional Thinset Removal Service Near You
You may have removed flooring yourself only to find a thick, uneven layer of thinset underneath. Or, you haven’t even started the flooring demolition project but are wondering about removing thinset as well. In either case, it is possible to remove thinset yourself.
Basically, by hand, you can use a hammer to crack the thinset and gently chisel away at the material until it crumbles apart. However, it’s very important not to damage the cement subflooring underneath. If the subfloor is damaged, you could compromise the structure of the entire flooring. And, dig an even deeper hole in your pocket to repair the mistake. All in all, it’s regularly suggested that the best way to avoid complications with subflooring and thinset is to have a professional remove thinset for you.
Considering Flooring Installation Experts for Thinset Removal
Sure, the contractor you’ve hired to install your new flooring could go ahead and remove your tile and also the thinset underneath. However, they are going to include this in the price of your entire flooring remodel. So, if this is the route you go, make sure that you understand specific charges for the flooring and thinset removal. But, there are other red flags to consider besides just price.
Since a flooring contractor will only have handheld equipment and manual workers, the labor of removing flooring and thinset will require days of chipping, hammering, chiseling, and hauling. And, since this entire process releases mass amounts of dust into the air, you can expect not to be able to be in the home or business for some time due to safety reasons. Additionally, you can expect to be cleaning dust from this manual construction process for the next few weeks. This means a longer timeline for your project and more of a hassle for you.
