Common Types of Damages in Tiles in the Shower
Cracked or chipped tiles are usually the result of the impact and must be replaced right away. Scratched tiles will also need immediate replacement. Many tiles today use glass as a glaze, and this is what gives them waterproof qualities. Any damage to this glass glaze can put the structure of the tile at risk.
Most of the time, the colouration of a tile is found on the surface. A deeper scratch will end up revealing the white ceramic below that. It is sporadic to encounter tile discolouration. Usually, the colour of a tile is set during the process of firing. If the stain does happen for one reason or another, replacement is the sole option you've got.
The ideal way of repairing loose shower floor tiles is removing and replacing them with brand new tiles. But, if there are no available replacements, the loose tiles can be bonded through the injection of the liquid bonding material to the tactically drilled holes into the grout lines in between. This activated bonding material is going to be cured while the holes are re-grouted.
As for worn tiles, you also need to replace them. Normal wear and tear can lead to erosion, and this can put a tile at structural risk.
When your shower starts having some signs of damages in its tiling, you know that it is high time for you to get the services of Gold Coast Tiling & Waterproofing for the best quality of shower repairs.
