    Hi! I am going to remove the tiles in my bathroom. Should I use the hand or power tools for breaking the tile? What kind of tools would you guys recommend?

    Hey Jeff, I just used a sledge hammer to strike the tiles which worked alright for me

    I would rent an electric demolition chipping hammer. It works really quickly and pulverizes the tile.

    A sledge hammer worked well for me too.

    Just start at the edge of the tile moving from a doorway.

    Thank you guys. I’ll probably use a sledgehammer which I already got at home.

    No problem. Don’t forget to wear your dust mask and safety goggles.

    I in fact use chisel to carefully breaks and peel every sheets of the tiles, although there are stuff that it can use to remove it as recommended by this hardware store http://caldwells.com/sliding-closet-door-hardware.
