HI, We want to replace the floor tiles in our porch - I assume this will damage the wall?

Will we be able to remedy this ourselves or will it mean someone has to come in and do a full wall skim?

Many thanks, Dusty

Unless you're using dynamite to remove the floor tiles there shouldn't really be a problem . The walls and floor can be treated as separate items . Use a bolster and hammer and lift without going mad at it , perhaps start with a drill to break up one tile and then work outwards.

Unless you have a tile 'skirting' which you intend t replace as well?
Then that may present a problem.

You can use grout remover tool some people fuse angle grinder then hammer and bolster the first one is tricky the rest will be easier if you need crack a tile you can hammer on top hope that helps

Don't ponce around with a bolster get an SDS chisel drill see http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb278s ... 240v/97533 Buy the wider chisel (cheaper at Toolstation) and that will make it an easy job. I recommend these so often I should be on commission. Best £60 you can spend :thumbright:
