Pulling up tile
Unfortunately, I am wishing that the person who had installed the tile initially had done a poor job so that the tile and mortar would shatter easier...but that doesn't seem to be the case.
I have 2 questions:
1. Is the grinder the only way to get the concrete floor smooth again (I am installing wood laminate after I finish)?
2. How long does it take for mortar to fully cure? The reason for the question is that I am finding when I chisel away at the tile and mortar sometimes the original concrete subfloor is removed also.
3. Has anyone tried a pneumatic/electic chisel or hammer in a condomium? I am worried about the people in the floor below me and whether I will be causing structural damage to the concrete.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
