The various tiles in our homes and businesses can experience a lot of wear and tear over time. The majority of high quality tile installations will be able to deal with this for many years, even a lifetime with no problems incurred what so ever! On some occasions you may experience signs of damage, if this is the case a full tile repair will very often be achievable to restore the original character and protection provided by a tile in a perfect working condition.
Tile repair is also likely to be a far more economical option to choose when compared to a full tile removal and replacement. Salem Tile Setters are not only experts in home tile design and tile installation, we have also spent many years perfecting the art of tile repair.
Cracked Tile Repair
After many years of exposure to moisture and other factors our tiles can become weakened, this is especially true if resealing has been neglected. Whatever the reason the occasional tile may develop a crack, this may be only a hairline crack but water penetration will now be a possibility. We have a full range of specialist equipment, resins, and fillers available to perfectly restore your cracked bathroom or kitchen tile back to full health.
Chipped Tile Repair
A chipped kitchen tile will compromise your ability to provide easy and care free cleaning. Any chip can gather dirt or food splatters making it a perfect place for bacteria to thrive. It will also provide an entry point for damp and moisture to be absorbed. A chipped tile can be treated in a very similar way to a cracked tile. We can perfectly match the color of your tile and fill it with a hardening solution to make the chip completely disappear.
Loose Bathroom or Kitchen Tiles
If you have a kitchen or bathroom tile that has become loose it should be re-secured to prevent it from falling, and potentially breaking. One of our tile installers can visit and remove the loose tile before firmly fitting it back in place. The grouting around the tile will also need to be renewed at this stage, we will do that as well. Salem Tile Setters tile repair service includes all areas of tile repair, no matter how small the job is we will be happy to take care of it for you. Call us today for all of your tile repair needs.
With the exception of glazed tiles such as ceramic and porcelain tiles, most tile installations should be treated with the application of a high quality protective and waterproof sealant. This sealant will provide outstanding protection for your new bathroom or kitchen tile installation. As with all liquid applications its ability to protect efficiently will begin to deteriorate over time.
n order to avoid the need for a future tile repair, this protective sealant should be renewed periodically. For the majority of tiles our experts recommend that this should be provided every two or three years so that a consistent level of protection is fully maintained.
