Hey there, Newbie here.
I live in Houston, TX where we suffer from draught almost every summer.
This summer it is on its worse course.
I bought a house 2 years ago. It was built in 1965 and sits on a slab.
Previous owners installed Italian tile in probably 1300 sq/ft of the house - the rest is hardwood floor.
It's been about 13 month now that I feel that in certain places in the house, the tile is loose. It started with "what was that...
" and now it's actual cracks in the grout and sensation of tile move. it's probably in 4 spots in my house, 5-7 1 foot tiles at a time. Unfortunately, we have no spear tiles.
I had a structural engineer check the house and generally speaking, there is no foundation problem and he thinks it was just a sloppy job.
Since it's such a large area of the house, retiling the house with a new tile would cost me no less the 10K - right? Can't afford that at the moment....
What's my second option? Have someone regrout the tiles? would that help? is there any way of injection adhesive underneath the tile?
What would you do? HELP
