Common Types Of Damage
Chipped, cracked or broken tile is often created from something being dropped and should be replaced.
Scratched tile should usually be replaced. Most tiles are glazed with glass, that’s what gives them their waterproof qualities. Damage to the glaze puts the tile structure at risk. Deep scratches can also be a cosmetic problem. Often a tile’s coloration is on the surface. Deeper scratches will show the white or red ceramic underneath.
Tile discoloration is very rare. Usually a tile’s color is set during the firing process. If for some reason discoloration happens, replacement is the only option.
What Can I Do About Hollow Tile?
Occasionally, a floor will sound hollow even when it’s well bonded. This occurs when mortar has delaminated from the supporting layer or the subfloor itself is not sufficiently thick, cracked or well attached. It should be closely examined by a professional to ascertain if hollow sounds necessarily imply that the tile is not well bonded. While a tile floor with hollow spots is not ideal, it does not mean that floor failure is imminent. On the contrary, over concrete if there is no deflection in the floor grout and gravity will help to keep the floor in place. Over wood, floor failure is much more likely to occur, movement in the subfloor can cause grout to break away from the tile, causing instability of the tile flooring.
