Repairing Tile and Grout in the Shower

Most home owners will eventually see damaged tile and grout on the walls or floor surrounding their shower or bath. But what many homeowners do not realize is that something as simple as chipped, cracked or hollow grout and tile, can lead to more serious damage. 

 Have you ever walked across tile and heard a hollow sound? This means the thin set has worn away. If you do not repair these tiles they will eventually crack.  The Stone Medic has a process that places a concrete bonding under the tile without removing it. This bonding will restore the tile to its original new integrity.  If the tile is broken or cracked it should be replaced.

Shower Restoration
Proper preparation for shower restoration is essential in order to secure a solid bond to the flooring or walls.  The last thing you want is another repair job on the same problem. In a shower, the damaged area can lead to serious problems behind the tile due to water leaking through to the backer board. This can also eventually damage the sheet rock. The Stone Medic uses and recommends Wonderboard. It is extremely strong and known for its concrete backing and fiberglass mesh. It will never  rot  and leave  your  tile  looking wonderful for years.
