Pool Tile Repair
Serving Miami-Dade, Broward & Palm Beach
Cracked or missing tiles in swimming pools and spas can indicate more than just an appearance problem. While tiles can fall off simply because of age or because poor adhesives were used to install them originally, they often break or pop off due to:
- Ground movement
- Inadequate drainage
- Cracked decking
- Expansive soil conditions
- Leaks or cracks developing behind the tile as a result of moisture between the grout and concrete degrading the adhesion and bond
- The original bond beam not having been properly prepped to accept the trim tile.
Before repairing, reattaching or replacing broken pool or spa tiles, it’s important to determine why the damage occurred in the first place. If there’s a serious underlying problem that needs to be addressed, repairing the tiles won’t fix it.
For example, if water-line tile falling off is a recurring problem, you need to create a flexible moisture barrier to keep water from getting behind the tile.
In most cases remodeling the pool is the answer.
