New Tile in Toilet Area
My home had cultured marble in the master bathroom. I had this removed and replaced it with ceramic tile. The ceramic tile isn't nearly as thick as the cultured marble and now my toilet sits ~3/4" too high.....

How do I fix this?

Wasn't the toilet removed before tiling? How thick was the cultured marble?

Your going to have to lower the flang or you can try one of these.

Okay, this thing turned into a ridiculous ordeal. So, thanks for all the replies.

Yes, my bathroom had cultured marble flooring. Apparently someone thought it looked good in 1985.

So, I cut the old flange off, flush with the new floor. I tried to use a 3" hole saw to bore the sleeve (about a 8" sleeve) that was attached to the old flange. My drill didn't have the balls to bore out the sleeve, so I used a flange with a 4" fitting that fit over the pipe... more to follow.
