Tile repair is normal
Do not be surprised or worried about tile repair for your pool or deck. Pool tiles are under constant use and exposure to the elements so from time to time there can be a tile or two that needs repair. The most common problem is tiles coming loose at the grout line, and it is very possible to discover a cracked or broken tile that needs to be replaced. Your first consideration should be to determine the actual age of your pool tiles. If your pool came with your home, you may need to do some investigative work to determine if the colors or style of your tile is outdated. If you choose a professional pool company to make your repairs, they can use color tints or powders that will make your finished product closely match the old tiles.
Identifying Type of Repair
The first thing that your pool contractor will do is identify what actually needs to be done to get your tiles back in shape. They will evaluate your pool and tiles for common types of repairs such as loose tile that is exposed at the grout line, cracked or broken tiles, missing pieces of tile.
Exposed grout line is probably the most common type of tile repair. This is because grout naturally wears out after a time, and may result in the edge of two tiles being loose. The common procedure is to remove all the old grout, clean the surface with soap and water, and apply new grout. If needed, they will add a color additive if needed.
Cracked and missing tile
For cracked tile, your pool contractor will apply a patch kit, and if necessary, they will mix in the appropriate color additive. Using the same technique and steps above, for a broken chunk of tile or for the whole tile, they will use the patch mix to fill in the missing piece. Repairing pool and deck tile can be a do it yourself project as long as you have the proper tools. You should also know what the proper materials are, and should be able to identify the specific repairs that need to take place. If you have any questions at all, your Charlotte pool company will be able to provide an affordable solution.
