Pools are the place to be when it comes to the dead heat of the summer. A cool dip in the pool can help make summer days go by faster. And of course, who doesn’t like jumping off a diving board or playing games with a water football. This all goes away though when you have cracked or loose tiles in your swimming pool because of the implications that is caused when it goes left unrepaired. In such cases the pool can become compromised. The Grout Medic of Denver has worked on several pools, repairing tiles that are on stairs or across the wall as a decorative design. If you own a pool and need some repairs done on it but are wondering how that may be possible then here is a breakdown of what you can expect.
The first thing that you’re going to want to do before you have a repair done is to drain your pool so that we can get in there to work on the tile. You’ll also want to make sure that it has dried out so that when we pull the tiles off, we don’t have to work in a puddle of water. Once the pool is dry then we will hop down into it and start where the first tile has popped off. From there we will start pulling off the surrounding tiles. Depending on what the homeowner wants will determine how many tiles we pull off. When it comes to a stair that has tile going across it, many want all the tiles pulled off and re-bonded.
Once we have all the tiles off, we then go and grind off the cement from the previous installation. After this has been accomplished, we clean up the area, making sure to vacuum the area thoroughly to make sure we get all the debris and dust up from grinding. We then take a moment and clean the tiles to make sure that they are in the best possible condition to be re-bonded. The next phase of the project is where we put down the cement and lay the tiles perfectly in place. From there we grout it with epoxy grout to ensure that no water will penetrate through.
