Bathroom Demo 2013
5 Attachment(s)
Hi All,

After staring at a broken tile for about a year in the bathroom, I pulled it up to see what was underneath...

The top flooring was cheap tile installed for the prev owners flip, followed by 5 layers, yes, 5 layers of vinyl sheet flooring.

And the odd thing, the flooring got nicer and less dated as I went down...

Your do plan on removing all if it, right?

Trucon01 02-19-2013 07:22 PM

Oh yes. All of it.

Removing sink, toilet and vinyl flooring

Under the vinyl was 3/8 plywood which is removed, exposing the sub-floor. I think it looks pretty good, minus the water damage near the toilet.

Wax gasket or rubber gasket? Is this bathroom in your basement?

Trucon01 02-20-2013 06:01 PM

No, this is the master bath in the master bedroom, which I use as an office. It had a wax ring.

I have a question which is posted in the Plumbing section if someone here can help.

The toilet is on a 3" ABS line and it had an outside 4x3 closet flange. I read that I can cut off the top of the flange, leaving the rest on the outside of the line and then use a 3" inside flange.

But I also read this would cut off the diameter too much. What can / should I be doing here?

After taking out the tile, the base was not screwed to the studs, anywhere...
