In reply to Removing Old Baseboards Grouted In by Alexander on February 1st, 2003 06:46 PM [Go to top of thread]

Alex, unfortunately this is a laborious job, with no easy way out.

If the face of the baseboard is flat (doesn't get thicker below the grout line) you can often use 1x material to protect the tile, tap a prybar into the base enough to get a hold, and pry the base straight up out of the grout. But still, you'll have pieces split out as you go.

Probably the most consistent method would be to use a reciprocal saw with a long flexible wood blade which could be bowed slightly to cut the base off flush with the grout.
