A few years ago I had a 3 piece Tub Suround kit glued directly over the old tile and now hate it.
Is there anyway I can remove it without completely damaging the tile underneath so I can go back to what I originally had?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
ADVISE WHEN HIRING A CONTRACTOR:
In all cases the Contractor is fully aware of the products needed for your project and the scheduling of those products to be onsite. NOTE: The homeowner is charged a "downtime fee" should the product not be onsite and ontime if the client is responsible for supplying the product.
If you are provided with a quote that is "vague" I would suggest you purchase your own product due to the fact that you never know what product the Contractor will be using. The "unclear" notes in the quote will usually spell "Additional Charges" upon your final invoice.
BE AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING INTO YOUR RENOVATION FROM THE BEGINNING!
The ultimate goal for any homeowner is to know exactly what products are going into your renovation at all times so as there are no surprises - additional product, materials and labor included! Take into account however that you and the Contractor may be confronted with issues unforseen such as behind walls, under floors, etc. When this happens request that all issues be communicated upfront and with a final confirmation of continuance from you, the client, prior to any addtional costs incurred.
Educate yourself and ask questions ... if your Contractor is honest and has integrity the answers you receive will be detailed and will make sense! If not, you may be paying more in the end than what originally quoted to you!
NOTE: Quotes are actual amounts and are realistic budgets. Estimates are "vague" and usually mean more money in the end!
