I will agree to a certain extent. I have used nail polish to cover or mask an imperfection. Use gloss after for a durable finish.

You cannot, only way is to replace crack tile. any "hairline restorer" "hairline paint" are simple cons and do not work! crack meant that these two bits move differently and need to be replaced with single unit, matter will go only worse.

How to Grout ceramic tile to shower base


Don't use grout! Instead use silicone caulk that matches your grout color as close as possible. Never grout where tile meets at a 90 degree angle it will crack.

Where does the rubber membrane go when tiling a bathroom floor


tiles on wooden floors will always move and crack the grout/tiling cement
therefore the rubber membrane goes down first with out nails and then everything is laid on top
that way when the wooden floor moves , there is a water proof membrane to prevent the water from rotting the wood over time

How do I fix a cracked ceramic tile


I would try breaking the tile up with hammer instead of prying from side, as you maybe chip or crack adjoining tiles. This method should work fine, you may loosen surrounding tiles but just re-mortar any tiles that may become loose. Wear eye protection. Good luck

Cat knocked evo unto ceramic tile floor. Screen is cracked but also looks like large growing ink splotches on the inside. Is this just screen and LCD


It sounds like not only was the glass screen cracked, but the LCD has been damaged as well. My suggestion is to find a local cell phone repair shop and get it replaced. It should be pretty easy to fix and shouldn't cost too much. Unless of course you have insurance on the phone..if so then just order a new one.

Hi I moved in to a recently renovated home one year ago. The kitchen had new ceramic tiles installed, with sanded grouted filled in the 5/8 inch joints. I sealed the grout after moving in as I was told...


I have a similar problem. My builder used dimensional lumber for the joists. I asked him if thet would be sufficiently stiff for tile floors, and he said yes. Then after the cracks started, I asked him why the cracks, but he said he didn't know why. It's not necessarily the subfloor but the combination of joists, subfloor, and concrete backer boards under the tile. If you can access the joists under the floor, perhaps you can reinforce them with additional joists or stiffeners before regrouting.
As for me, I have done neither so far. Wife has not complained, so I spend my spare time helping people on FixYa. Like you, I fear regrouting will just lead to recracking, and I no longer have access to the joists. :o(

By the way, your question was sorted as a Harley Davidson question. You weren't riding you bike in the kitchen, were you?

I have crack in my shower floor concrete, would like to fix it before laying tiles and hope it won't be visible after i am done with tiles. I had tiles before wich I am removing now and will instal new...


There is a tile backer, kinda of like fiberglass mesh, I have also seen a waffle looking plastic, that will go down over the crack in the floor and will not effect the tile one bit. You just tile over everything, no mastic, no set under this stuff, no fasteners, just tile over it like a normal floor, and the best part is, no crack! Hope this helps.

Wrong floor tile adhesive used. Contractor used timber floor adhesive instead of concrete. Some tiles cracking and adhesive not drying?


it depends on what kind of tiles they were. If they were soft tile, then they may crack anyway if the floor is not level, also if he made the floor uneven by using the adhesive they can crack. Many soft tiles are peel and stick and no adhesive is needed. If they were hard stone tiles then he should have been using grout to stick them down and grout the cracks in between as well. It sounds like you need to have someone else come in and re-access the problem as I can't see the whole situation, but it sounds like the tiles may need to come back up. You can either get the same guy to come back and fix his mistake or get some one else to fix it then go after him to messing it up. If you want to choose another person I recommend looking at www.superpages.com.

Tile over a cracked cement floor


You can get a crack membrane to put over the cracks. First use a primer on the floor, this is a primer just for this application, then put membrane on top of primer. these products can be found at home depot or lowes or any tile store.Also do not use cheep thinset. the better thinset is more flexible and will absorb any movement. The cement board would not work as they will move or flex and cause the grout to crack and tile to loosen
