Tile repair for your pool or deck is often necessary because swimming pool tiles are always under harsh exposure to the elements. Your swimming pool should receive yearly inspection and maintenance in order to keep your pool looking new and in order to reduce costly repairs in the future. A tiled pool provides a very beautiful and durable surface that may need to be repaired as your pool ages.
Your annual pool inspection should be performed by a Charlotte pool company that has been maintaining tiled pools for several years. Before the swimming season, the pool contractor will come in to drain the pool. Once the pool is drained, they will inspect the tiles for any loose tiles or grout. They will also clean the tile in the pool and remove visible debris as well as bacteria, dirt and grime. Whenever necessary, they will replace missing tiles, repair the pool original surface, and loose grout.
Tile is versatile
Tile is always the perfect choice for homeowners who are looking for unique, beautiful, and functional pool design. Mosaic tiles are the most popular choice for several reasons. First, they can be designed in an endless variety of patterns and colors. For commercial and public pools, porcelain mosaic tile is chosen because of its durability; but also because it can be customized to represent school and corporate logos. Porcelain tiles are utilized because of its low porosity and high wear rating.
Some tile pools utilize cement formed skeleton with a water proof type of membrane sandwiched between two layers of concrete. Swimming pool tiles are installed over the concrete skeleton, and grouted into place. Some pools have a sheet membrane that is applied directly to the cement skeleton with tile attached to the waterproof membrane. There are also gunite pools and fiberglass pools that are tiled with special products and materials.
Maintaining proper water pH is very important. If the pH is not at proper levels, the water will break down the cement products such as cement based grout, which will eventually wash out between the tiles. Once the grout is washed away, the adhesive and base will start to deteriorate. The end result is loose or missing tiles. It is best to use a latex modified adhesive, which will improve tile adhesion and help hold up tile integrity when the pool expands and contracts. When the pool repairs are completed, your Charlotte pool builders will recommend the proper care that must be followed in order to achieve maximum results.
