Starting down the long road...

Postby Stephen » Sat Sep 03, 2011 7:56 am

of tile and mastic removal!

I've read the threads, seen the pictures, felt the angst. Here's my plan of attack:

Tile Removal:

Bully Tools 6" Scraper + Wagner Heat Gun (wish me luck)

Mastic Removal:

Bean-e-doo...I tried to buy some today but White Cap is closed, despite the fact their website says they will be open. I will follow up with some degreaser.

Final Surface:

I'm not sure. I want something with just a hint of sheen and a little more slickness to the surface. I think epoxy will be overkill so I'm looking at acrylic sealers or maybe just type of wax. Any ideas?

I'm just doing my office so a bit over 100sq ft.

Brave fellow! So you're taking it down to the concrete and keeping it simple? I could live with that. Should you want to do something else in the future you'll have a blank slate. Good luck!
