How long will it take to remove my tiles?
To date we have finish 99% of our domestic jobs in 1 day, allowing for minimum disruption to you and your family.
Can i lay my new floor over existing tiles?
Yes, But it is not ideal, as the end result is not always as good when you don’t start with the original sub flooring, some things to think about are, do you get a warranty for your new flooring, will doors need to cut down, will your dishwasher still fit under your bench top to name a few.
Will the floor be smooth and level?
Diamond grinding will ensure a smooth finished result for 99% of floors but not necessarily level in some cases the sub floor is in poor condition to start with, this in turn dictates the end result
Do tiles come up easy?
Only if they are laid poorly, with top of the line equipment and the appropriate skills we make tile removal look a lot easier than it actually is.
Do you need to see my job?
No, we carry all the equipment we need to complete all our jobs
I’ve popped the tile up, but there is still adhesive what do i do?
Getting the tile up is only half the job, in most cases it does not help us. Our technique for jackhammering takes the tile and the majority of the adhesive at the same time we then diamond grind the residual adhesive
Will it be dusty?
Yes, the demolition process will be dusty. We do have “dust limiting” equipment, though. We will provide and install drop sheets and tape to minimise the spread of dust throughout the work area. Also, we perform a thorough vacuum of the work area upon completion.
