The first thing when it comes to a cracked tile that we need to find out is why it cracked in the first place. There are various reasons as to why your tile may be cracked. Often times when its just one tile that is cracked it is because there was a heavy object was dropped on it. This allows for an easy repair. However, if there is a crack line that goes through several tiles then it has to do with the floor and is a bit more extensive when it comes to repairing the problem.

Once we have established the root of the problem, we know the specifics of how to go about fixing it. Essentially, we remove the surrounding grout and then we break the rest of the cracked tile to be able to remove it from the floor. Afterwards we grind down the old cement that was binding it to the floor. Once we have that smooth and leveled out, we are ready to set the new tile into place. We mix the new cement and make sure that it is level with the rest of the tile. After we let that set, we then move on to replacing the surrounding grout that we took out. With our large selection of colors to choose from we can perfectly color match to the original grout color. After we have put the grout in it you won’t be able to tell where the repair was even made.
