In response to Re: Concrete mounted toilet flange closet bolts
IF there is a cast iron flange it has slots for bolts. I cannot imagine why anyone, especially a plumber with any training at all, would anchor the bolts in concrete, but if they really are, then cut them off even with the concrete and insert new bolts into the flange's slots as if it were a new installation.
