WE ARE TRYING TO REMODEL AN OLD SMALL BATHROOM. WE WANT TO LAY CERAMIC TILE OVER OLD MOSAIC AND WE HAVE A RADIATOR. ANY ADVICE ON WHAT WE SHOULD DO? THE RADIATOR IS THE PROBLEM. WHEN WE REMOVE IT TO LAY THE TILE, WHAT CAN WE DO SO THAT THE LEGS OF THIS RADIATOR CAN BE REINSTALLED? GIVE ME ALL POSSIBLE SCENARIOS!

THANKS,

LIZ

yes, it is an old radiator. The house was built in 1931. We also took out the tiles around the wall (bottom border) and they were very difficult to remove due to the mortar and material behind the mortar. ( Next door neighbors don't have their tiles installed this way!) Now we are trying to figure out how to install the dry wall over this gap. But getting back to the radiator, what can you tell us?

Thanks for replying,

Liz

there are 2 ways to do it.

1) Install around the legs.

2) Remove the radiator, install the floor tile, then reinstall the radiator, which will require a plumber to come in and adjust the the fixed piping for height.

as to your problem with the gap the wall base mudset tile leaves, toy can fill that in with wood is probably rour best bet.
