Common Problems with Tile and Why You Should Refinish Them Instead

There are all sorts of problems with tile, including cracked grout, loose floors, flaking glaze, and mismatched patterns. One tile company listed common complaints by clients on their website—and this is just a partial list:

  • My polished porcelain floor does not seem to have an even shine.
  • My tiles are warped.
  • My tiles are scratched.
  • The glaze on my tiles is flaking off.
  • My tiles seem to have small cracks on the edges.
  • My shower is leaking through the tiles.
  • My tiles have been laid, but they are wrong or damaged.
  • My tiles have defects in the surface.
  • My tiles seem to be different than the ones I selected.
  • Some of the tiles on my wall or floor are the wrong color.
  • There are cracks running across my tiled floor.
  • The glaze on my tiles is flaking off.
  • The grout is crumbling.
  • The grout is turning dark.
  • My porcelain tiles are stained.
