Unfortunately, accidents can happen, and sometime these accidents can crack or damage your tiles. Thankfully, tiles can be repaired or replaced when such accidents occur. If the tile only has a slight crack or scuff mark, try finding some matching paint, and paint over the cracked area. This should make the tile look as good as new.
However, sometimes a tile is too badly damaged to be painted over, and will need to be replaced. The first step to removing the tile is to cover it with a towel or rag, and shatter the tile with a hammer. Then remove the tile shards and old adhesive. Make sure the area is clean from any debris left by the old tile. Once the area is cleaned, apply some adhesive to the new tile and set in place. Give the tile time to set, and then it’s time to grout the tile. After adding the grout, simply remove the excess with a damp sponge. Remember, DO NOT walk on a newly set tile for 24 hours, in order to allow everything to set properly.
Even if the worst case scenario happens, and you need to replace multiple tiles, Tiles Unlimited has you covered. With Tiles Unlimited, we can supply you with any tile, and any design to suit your needs!
