This is a service that is a bit tricky. You can find yourself in need of help with your pool tiles when just a couple of them have chipped off. This can also be a service where we literally have to go in and redo an entire section of the pool. Obviously, there is a major price difference between one situation and the other. That being said, being able to detect the actual problem in time can really save you hundreds in repairs in the long run. There are times where people will just be looking to get us to replace a couple of tiles, and they just don’t stop and think that there is a bigger reason why they are coming off. Even if we do put them back in the rest of the tiles are going to continue to deteriorate.
Why Are These Tiles Comming Off?
As we just mentioned this is the first thing that we are going to have to asses. For the most part, if the tiles came off because they were hit a ball or something that was thrust in their direction then we can talk about a quick fix. A lot of times though tiles coming off are a sign of deterioration due to a variety of issues. Most of which have to do with an excessive amount of moisture.
Calcium Deposit Issues
Calcium deposits can really effect pool tiles. These usually form on tiles that are not being regularly cleaned out. When these form they tend to affect a large area of the pool. So it is not uncommon for tiles to start looking old and worn down because of this. At the end of the process, the tiles are usually going to fall out and the calcium deposits could have caused more damage to other parts of the structure. The best thing that you can do is prevent these issues by washing the tiles on a regular basis.
Remove Seal & Replace
More often than not when we are facing any type of tile issue we are going to want to get to the bottom of the problem and we literally mean that. One of the best solutions is to go ahead and remove all or a large part of the tile sections. Then what we will do is make sure that we repair any of the damages that were caused to the structure and then we will go in and replace the old tiles with new ones. This is actually a great way to renew the entire look of your pool.
Are Tiles Still In Use?
We have actually gotten this question from a lot of people. Tiles are certainly not being used as much as they were at other points in time. Pools though are still being fitted with tiles to this day. That being said, we can help you explore other options if you want to get rid of the tiles altogether. We can also help you to structural pool repair work.
