Tile Repair & Replacement Service
Have you noticed a small crack in your bathroom floor? Or maybe a tiny chip in your backsplash? Even though these issues may not seem like a big deal for most people in Midwest Collin County, it's imperative to address that damage as soon as possible. Don’t delay on tile repairs or replacement.
Not only will that damage detract from the overall aesthetic of your home, but it could also be a safety hazard. Family members and pets might not see the damage and walk on or touch the sharp edge. Also, even the smallest crack breaks the material's water resistant barrier, meaning moisture could seep into your subfloor or drywall and cause serious damage.
To keep your house looking its best while avoiding injury and water damage, call the team at Mr. Handyman of Midwest Collin County as soon as you notice a problem. We offer a range of efficient and careful tile repair services and tile replacement services.
What Causes the Damage?
Most tiles—especially porcelain and ceramic—are highly durable and built to last. After all, your floors and backsplashes are used almost daily. They're walked on, support furniture, exposed to high heats, and sometimes submerged in water. Yet, there are still many ways they can get damaged. And even the smallest amount of damage can worsen if not fixed right away. Some common issues include:
Accidents: Sometimes, life happens! Accidents like dropping heavy furniture can chip even the sturdiest materials.
Cracks in the Subfloor: If your home has a concrete subfloor, it might have cracked and caused the material above to crack as well. Generally, concrete is laid on top of control joints that prevent this issue. But if the joints were placed incorrectly, or not added at all, the floor might get damaged.
Incorrectly Installed Joists: Everything on your floor is built on top of joists. If they were built too far apart, the gaps could cause the floor to sag and anything on top to bend or crack.

Can You Replace One Broken Piece?
Absolutely. Our professional replacement services can carefully remove one damaged piece and put a new one in its place. Since ceramic and porcelain batches are all unique, we suggest saving extra pieces each time you renovate. That way, you'll have a selection from the same batch and the replacement will match seamlessly.
Can I Handle Tile Repairs and Tile Replacement Myself?
If you're a comfortable DIYer, you can absolutely do repairs or replacement projects by yourself. That said, it's quite a labor-intensive process with a lot of room for things to go wrong. Even a small repair job could cause dust and debris to fly through the air, so it's not safe for all homeowners to try this task by themselves. Not to mention, you may need specialty tools like a grout saw. Accumulating tools you only use for one repair job is not worth it for most homeowners.
How Hard is it to Remove Ceramic?
Ceramic flooring replacement is difficult—especially if you're not practiced at DIY tasks. It could take hours to safely break-up the mortar base and chip away at the pieces. While individual tile replacement or working in a small area like a kitchen backsplash will require less time, removing flooring is a considerable effort. Without the help of a professional, it could take you an entire weekend just to remove the old pieces—let alone replace your flooring with a new material.
Can You Put a New Floor Over Ceramic?
Although some materials can be placed on-top of a ceramic floor, this is not a good practice, and we don't recommend doing so. Often, old tiling can have dirt and grime that can be difficult to scrub away fully. Even the smallest amount of bacteria left beneath your floors could spread. Not to mention, it's integral to work with a flat surface during flooring replacement projects.
Instead of covering it with something like vinyl or laminate, the best practice is getting total tile replacement service for your floor from a home repair service professional. That way, there's an opportunity to ensure your subfloor is in good condition and that no underlying issues could impact the structural integrity of your home.
