Removing 1 x 1 tiles


I started removing tile from our bathroom floor and they are the tiny 1x1's. I have been using a grout saw and grout removal tool and then using a hammer and multi-tool (paint scraper) to lift up the tile one at a time basically.

I do not mind doing this as I do not have much of a choice do to being on the 2nd floor and having an elderly lady below us who likes to complain a lot.

Underneath the tile, I assume is mastic? Underneath that is concrete I assume. I have read some different posts and it may also be gypcrete. Is there a way to tell exactly what may be underneath.

Where the old vanity was, they did not tile underneath, so it appears to be concrete.

Any suggestions on how I can tell the difference?

Removing 1 x 1 tiles


The building was built in the 70's. We had a friend give us a quote for demo and install and it was not in our ballpark figure. At least doing the demo, would knock the price down. I figure if I am going to demo it though, I might as well go ahead and install it..

I should be able to post a picture, yes. I will try to get one up here for you to look at.

Thank you.
