Ensuring that your pool tiles are clean is very important – it can make your whole backyard look brand new!
Tile Solution is proud to offer a variety of pool tile restoration and repair options to bring your outdoor dreams to life. As pools age, the surrounding ground begins to settle, and this can lead to some minor cracks in the pool’s walls. We have multiple options for pool tile repairs, including grout and tile cleaning, sealing, regrouting and tile restoration.
Our pool restoration services include:
Grout and Tile Cleaning
We understand the importance of ensuring swimming pool tiles and grouting are clean – a dirty tile is both unhygienic and makes the pool water look dirty. The technique of pool cleaning completed depends on the type of tile or stone used. We recommend that you utilise our free consultations and let us figure out the technical aspect. For more information, please refer to our page on tile cleaning.
All your hard work to ensure your pool is frequently cleaned and maintained could all go to waste if your pool surroundings are not expertly sealed. Sealing makes your pool area significantly easier to clean and increases the overall quality of the pool. It is widely recommended that pools are resealed every two to three years. Our trustworthy team would love to reseal your pool and poolside area. For more information, please refer to our page on the tile sealing.
Regrouting Floor Tiles
Many swimming pools are surrounded by pavers, tiles, or stone to enhance the natural beauty of this luxurious addition to your house. However, the chlorine used in many pools and the general wear and tear from such a high traffic area can lead to the necessity to re-grout. For a variety of both safety and aesthetic reasons, we recommend regrouting your pool at least every five years. For more information, please refer to our page on regrouting floor tiles.
Pool Tile Repairs
At many homes, pools are a high traffic area. As a result, the tiles can be damaged over time. Common damages include loosening, cracking, or slight movements. This may be due to usual wear and tear, excess water, or algae/bacteria growth. No matter the cause, Tile Solution is able to repair or replace individual tiles around your pool.
Installing and Replacing Expansion Joints
A pool expansion joint is the gap between where the deck ends and the pool begins. It is made of a sealant, such as caulk, and ensures that the pool and deck materials can both move or expand slightly without damaging each other. After prolonged use, these joints can stain, wear out, rip, or separate from the edge of tiles. At this point, your pool expansion joints require immediate replacements to ensure that no water enters under the tile’s surface (which may cause efflorescence). Our highly skilled team is able to install or replace pool expansion joints quickly and easily anywhere around Victoria. Refer to our page on caulking for more information.
Efflorescence is due to the salt deposits around a pool that bring moisture surrounding surfaces. After the moisture evaporates, what’s left is a chalky white powder visible on the surface of tile, grout, stone and concrete. Efflorescence could either be a cosmetic issue or it could be due to a major structural issue with the pool tiling. At Tile Solution, our team is equipped with the latest high quality tools and products to quickly and easily remove efflorescence without damaging any of the surrounding tiles.
Acid washing is done by using a highly concentrated acid-based cleaner that dissolves rust, hard water stains and algae buildup. Acid washes are more than just a clean, they actually remove a thin outer layer of the pool’s plaster. This removes stains, algae and dirt and leaves you with a fresh and clean looking pool. We recommend acid washing when your pool water begins looking murky or green/black in colour, or about every five to seven years.
Grinding and Polishing of Pool Floors
For an intense pool tile restoration, we recommend grinding and polishing your pool floors. This provides a brand new look to your pool, and you have the choice to either keep the same finish or change the look to either honed, matte, semi gloss, or gloss. For more information, please refer to our page on grinding and polishing.
