Sometimes, you might want to reuse or recycle some materials during a remodel, and tile backsplash materials are certainly an option. The task does take some work to make the tiles usable again, but if you are willing to put in the effort, the results are sure to save some money.
Glass tile is an excellent option for reuse
Reusing tile takes some work to ensure the proper use of the materials for reinstallation, and we can help accomplish your goals in a timely and efficient manner. Here are the steps we’ll take to reuse your existing porcelain, ceramic, and glass tile.
- The first step is to remove the grout entirely to remove the tiles once the edges are workable.
- Removing the tiles takes the most time, as great care is taken to pry them up without breakage, which may still occur with a few pieces.
- Once the tiles are taken up, we can start the removal of the old mortar. This process usually requires the use of stripping agents such as mineral spirits or a similar solvent.
- After the tiles are thoroughly cleaned and dried, they can then be reused
