discontinued tile size

by cacran » Tue Oct 10, 2023 2:14 pm

I need to remove two tiles from my bathroom to do some pipework. I am hoping to get the tiles out in one piece.
These tiles are discontinued. We got them from Wickes a number of years ago. The size is 350 x 230mm. They are gloss white with a slight dimple. the backing is terracotta. Only got a few slivers of tiles left in my shed. Really don't want to change tiles as they are on all walls floor to ceiling.

Hi cacran,
It’s really important you get the tiles out for reuse. Cut out the grout around the tiles then inject water into the grooves repeat for a day or so to soften the old adhesive.
