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?

Cultured marble on the floor ???

Grout the toilet with tile grout.:)

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.
