I am doing a bathroom remodel on a late '60s house. The bathroom tile is set on a roughly 1.5" cement bed with embedded wire mesh. I have removed a small portion with a rotary hammer with a pointed bit and a 2lb sledge.
Is this the best / safest method. I am of course wearing proper saftey gear. I am more concerned about damaging the subfloor or framing. The tile is above an unfinished basement.
I've seen where people get under the metal mesh and try to pry the tile up. Is this a better method and how would I get started with it?
