I want to replace some old showertile. After a few hours with hammer, putty knife, and showers of ceramic bits (with little progress) thought I'd get some advice. Whoever installed this meant it to stay. The mastic, wall, and tiles are like one mass. Am I better off ripping out the walls or is there a better way of removing tile that I'm missing?
Two of the three walls appear to be plasterboard. The third wall which is giving me the headaches, appear to be concrete board. The tile is stuck very firmly to the concrete board. Is it better to chip away or just pull the whole thing?
