Toolaholic’s step-by-step guide to demolishing your bathroom
Next, if you are removing baseboards and door/window casing make sure to use a sharp utility knife to score the seam where they meet the wall, as this will prevent the paint from peeling away, exposing raw drywall paper. You can then use a flat bar to pry wood trim away, making sure to remove all stray fasteners.
Once the tile is up, you want to take your time and remove all bits of stray thinset and staples on the subfloor. I recommend the use of a concrete grinder, but if you don’t have access to one, you can also scrape the subfloor with a stiff scraper.
Well, there you have it! This should summarize the demolition process! Once you clean up all of your debris, you are ready to start prep work for wall and floor tile installs. Goodluck and have fun! And thank you, American Standard for all that you do. Best, Kiefer aka Toolaholic
