In response to Re: Toilet flange too high
Put on a new flange. The degree of difficulty depends on what the existing flange is made of and how it is installed.

: Hi
: Today I just ripped out the wet bed, wire mesh and tile from my early 1970's bathroom (quite an exhausting job). The thickness of the material removed is 1.25 inches. I am thinking ahead, when I put in the new concrete backer board and then the thin set and tiles, my finished height will be somewhat less that the elevation of the toilet flange.

: My question is should I put in a double thickness of concrete backer board or should cut and put in a new toilet flange.

: If the answer is to replace the toilet flange, how difficult of a job is it and how is it done?

: Thanks in advance
: Vince
