Updated:2013-07-08 11:37:59


Natural stone tiles are an attractive and durable tile choice that fit with many different interior styles in homes. While it can last for years and stand up well to wear and tear, stone tile can eventually show signs of chipping, scratching and discoloration. These are common repair needs, and most are relatively simple with the right tools and instructions. Here we will firstly introduce whether it is necessary to repair or replace your natural stone tile?


Stone tiles can become loose over time from heavy foot traffic or from a heavy dropped object. In this case, it simply needs some new grout added underneath. Carefully pull up your loose tile with the chisel. While stone tiles are tough, it is important not to accidentally chip or otherwise damage surrounding tiles during this process.

Once you have removed the loose tile, inspect the grout to determine if it needs to be cleaned. Discolored grout is more prone to wear over time, resulting in loose tiles. Scrub away any grout dirt with the sponge and water; you may need to mix in some bleach to completely remove it. Then use your utility knife to cut away any remaining discolored grout; fill in these spaces and cracks with new grout and replace your stone tile. It should now fit snugly with the rest. Be sure to apply grout sealer and allow the area to cure for at least 24 hours.
