Removing backsplash - not grouted
When updating our counter top to quartz - we were required to replace the backsplash tile.
The original tile was removed and drywall replaced and primed.
The new tile is simple Lowe's stock white subway tile 3 rows up, topped with a 2 inch bull-nose row. As it sounded pretty darn simple as far as backsplashes go, we hired a 'tile guy' advertised in kiji.
This fellow decided he only needed spacers horizontally and just winged it vertically leaving huge (and I mean HUGE) variations in the spacing and far outside the requirement for unsanded grout. To add to the matter - he did not think about where to start (over the stove where it runs up) and we ended up with numerous 'after the fact' odd cuts ...
When he came back to grout, we paid him for his time and told him it was not 'what we were looking for'
My question - can we easily remove tiles which have been set but not grouted? We really don't want to have to have the drywall redone again ... like really really don't want to ...
