Cracked tile? No problem!
Sometimes all it takes is a brief lack of concentration: an object falls to the ground and, before you know it, the tile is cracked. Fortunately, the damage is easy to repair.
A little tip in advance: Get yourself a small supply of spare tiles when you purchase the tiles (especially when they are on special offer) because exactly the same tile is not always available later at retail outlets.
Carefully knock out the old tile from the middle to the edges with a hammer and chisel. Then completely remove the adhesive residues and grout. Using an electric scraper is a proven method of doing this. Now the surface is cleaned and new tile adhesive is applied using a small notched trowel.
Press the new tile into the adhesive bed and line it up. After the specified drying time, grout the joints and leave them to dry. Finally, remove the remaining grout with a damp sponge – done!
The finishing touch:
To make replaced joints look “old”, simply rub some dirt into the joints until they are roughly the same colour as the neighbouring joints.
