Bathroom tiles can suffer significant damage after many years of use. Some of the signs of worn bathroom tiles you will see in your home include visible cracks, chips, stains, broken tiles and grout joints that are damaged. These deteriorated or damaged tiles can become a major issue especially when water leaks through the cracks or chips into your shower walls, floor and other associated bathroom features. Not to mention no one enjoys bathing in a bathroom with damaged tiles!
When making the decision to replace or repair your tiles there are a few things to keep in mind. Although buying new tiles can be expensive the labour involved to repair old tiles, which includes scraping off glue and smoothing edges, could end up just a costly as replacing them. Despite this every case is different. If you only have a few loose tiles that need to be stripped back and reglued repairing them is a very cost-effective solution. On the other hand, if you are renovating your bathroom it is best to replace old tiles while everything else is being replaced too.
