Removing Paint from ConcreteThe first thing that needs to happen before you can start anything significant with your tile flooring is the removal of old permanent layers. Things like paint, adhesives, oils, etc. will significantly cripple your tile job. While the thinset might have no problem sticking to the paint, the layer of paint may come loose from the concrete, weakening the strength of the thinset.
To Remove Paint from Concrete You’ll Need:
- Floor Scraper
- Chemical Resistant Gloves
- Old Shoes
- Paint Roller and Pole
