Ripping up your bathroom or kitchen tiles as a do-it-yourself project seems straight forward, right?

But what do you do when you realise the former owner simply tiled over the top of the existing ones and there is in fact three or even four layers of flooring underneath?

Or worse, you potentially uncover something that looks like deadly asbestos?

Ripping up old tiles or flooring isn’t as straight forward as it seems. These stories are just some of the ones Stript Flooring has come across in the Redlands.

“Sadly we have come across a lot of dodgy work where the quality of flooring is not great and removal has left a lot of glue or divots in the concrete, compromising the laying of the new floor,” Stript Floorings Bettina Fine said. 

“Some people don’t pull up flooring or tiles, they cover over the top of what is existing. To make up for height difference doors are shaved.”

With more than 15 years experience Stript’s project manager Don Cohen is able to pick up on issues like this quickly during a free quote. 

To ensure you get the perfect floor the team of experienced technicians who can prepare your floors for new covering, potentially saving you from issues later on. Removal includes tiles, wood, cork, paint, vinyl, carpet, glue and slate; stripping cleaning and preparing the surfaces.
