Any tips on removing stone tile backsplash?
We are planning a remodel of our kitchen counter top and backsplash. The kitchen currently has a travertine tile backsplash, which extends from the silestone counter top up to the bottom of the kitchen cabinets. Once a new granite countertop is installed, we will start on the backsplash. We would like to remove the old backsplash ourselves in order to save a few $$s, but want to be careful as to not destroy the underlying material, which I THINK is a layer of hardi-plank or cement board. The new backsplash will be of simple painted beadboard to compliment the style and period of this home. How difficult is this removal for DIY'rs to tackle? Any tips on how to proceed?
