I am doing some preliminary research and investigation into remodeling my master bath.
The house was built in 2002 so not too old. The master bath is on second floor. I removed the air vent to see what I am dealing with under the tile and it appears to be some sort of metal mesh stapled to either a wood sub-floor or the joists with concrete on top of it, about 3/4" thick and then the tile.
I am going down to studs in this bathroom, but I'm unsure of the floor.
Can I remove the tile and thinset and just re-tile on the concrete 'sub-floor'? Or will I likely need to remove the concrete too? (I would think that's overkill).
If removing the concrete is necessary, what replaces it?
Thanks for any advice!
