Bathroom Floor

I'm re-modeling a bathroom.

I have discovered that the bathroom floor is made up of what looks like concrete with a ceramic layer on top, the ceramic layer being approximately 0.05 to 0.1" thick. The ceramic layer is textured to look like 1" square tiles.

I think that the concrete is about 0.375" thick and is laid on a sub-floor of plywood.

I have a photograph of it but I don't know how, or whether it is possible, to post it here.

Has anyone ever come across this kind of surfacing before?

If so:-

How do you get it up?

Can you get it up without damaging the plywood sub-floor?

Thanks.

I sounds like you are describing 1" mosaic ceramic tile. They generally come on sheets of mesh in 12" x 12" sheets. I'm assuming that because the tile is grouted, you are only seeing the top glazing of the 1" tiles and assume they are somehow bonded to a 3/8" mortar bed. It also sounds like they are bonded directly to the plywood subfloor. If this is not right, you need to explain it better and maybe post a picture. Im not sure how to post pictures here so maybe someone else can help with that.

It may also be etched concrete. They can etch and stain concrete to look almost exactly like tile. Just a thought.
