Need Ceramic Tile Cracks repaired

We have 50 ceramic floor tiles in our house which have cracks. No replacement tiles available. We are selling house and want these tiles repaired/filled in. The cracks are in the tiles themselves. Light colored tiles.

Hi Tilecracked,

Welcome.

If you would, put a first name in the permanent signature line (User CP) so that people can remember you. Also, a mod will probably move this over to the tile advice forum.

If you have cracked tiles, the installation needs to be replaced with attention directed to fixing the problem that caused the floor tiles to crack.

Do you know what type of construction is under the tile installation (joist size / span, subfloor type and thickeness, cement board, etc., etc.)?

What you are thinking and hoping can't be done, the floor has to come up and be redone correctly.

There is a solution to your problem other than pulling the tile.....just buy the MIGHTY PUTTY!!!!!
Looking at their commercial it appears to me that it can do pretty much anything......

Welcome, Tilecracked. Even though we generally ask a mess of questions to give very specific answers.....there's nothing about what you said that sounds repairable. Something is allowing those tiles to move a ton...and there aren't band-aids for cracked tiles. Sorry.
