Stripping half a tile?!


Ive recently moved into a new house, the tiles in the shower unit are half stripped and i now will need to strip the rest and retile with different tiles from the rest of the bathroom (i cant find similar tiles). The problem is the shower was installed after the bathroom was tiled which means on both sides of the shower half a tile is in the shower cubicle and the other half is outside. What is the easiest and most cost effective way to remove these half tiles?

There is no easily was to cut tiles in half when they are still on the wall. I am thinking you have some sort of shower door put over the tiles. I would suggest removing that so you can remove the whole tiles. If you save enough without breaking then you could cut them in half to fish up witch ever side you wish to keep the tiles on.

4" grinder & .110 diamond blade makes quik work of the job,,, does glass tile, too,,, removing the tiles from grout/thin-set's another issue, tho.
