    coping and tile removal

    I have a tile contractor working on removing my tile and coping now . The electric hammer they are using is chipping the bond beam
    while they are removing the cement that held the coping tile in place is this normal ? I don't think so some of the chips are large.

    How big is large? Some chipping is unavoidable and any loose material or areas needs to be removed for proper adhesion of the tile and coping. Any voids will be filled with the material used to set the coping and tile. It is most likely fine. Got a pic?
