Probably one of the most common problems you may experience with ceramic tile is cracking. Most of the time the cause is simple wear and tear but there are some other reasons this can happen. One reason is that the tiles were not installed properly. Another reason is that in areas that experience extremes of temperature the house will expand or contract which can also cause cracks to form in tile floors. Depending on the size of the crack in the tile the repair job could range from simply filling them in with a little grout to the need to replace the tile altogether.
Grout is an area where you will likely notice deterioration with ceramic tile floors. You may notice it is crumbling, cracking, or becoming discolored. This will happen if the grout has not been sealed properly, allowing the grout to absorb moisture. You may notice this especially in bathrooms or other moisture-prone areas. In cases where grout is too damaged, the best solution is to remove the grout and redo it.
If you notice the tile floor is uneven in places this can be because the tile was not installed correctly. Give the floor a thorough inspection and if you see particularly uneven areas, you may find the only solution is to redo it.
Yes, ceramic tile flooring is a good, durable option but, like most flooring, it can develop issues over time.
