How to Replace Shower Tile


Many of the older homes on the market can be made
to look better just by doing small changes. 
Also with older homes come bathrooms with tubs and showers that have some
tile that is, to be frank, really ugly. 
Replacing shower tile will take some time, but it will save you some
money and make your bathroom look more up-to-date, if not better in some way.



            The
first task is to remove the old tile. 
The right tools for the job will make a big difference.    A flat knife, hammer, chisel, hammer, utility
knife, and a paint scraper will help to get the job done.  It is also recommended that you have some
gloves to protect your hands and some safety glasses.  Remove your plumbing fixtures and cover the
tub with something that will protect it if the tiles fall down.



            Using
the knife, remove the grout (white part) between the tiles, cut as deep as you
can.  The hammer and chisel will help in
removing the tiles themselves.  There
will be tile adhesive and possibly some tiles left stuck to the wall.  This is where the paint scraper comes in-use
it to remove these things.



            Once
you have the walls measured, start to install the tile by using tile adhesive
to stick them to the wall and using spacers so that the tiles are evenly
spaced.  Continue this process until all
the tiles are laid.  To seal off the
tiles, use caulking to fill in the spaces between the tiles.  Smooth off the caulk to give it the look it
needs!  Wait for the caulk to completely
dry before reinstalling your plumbing fixtures.
