Dislodged or Popping Tiles
Are your floor tiles or wall tiles starting to dislodge? One sign that your tiles might be dislodging is when the produce a ‘hollow’ sound when you knock a metallic item against them. If you hear a ‘hollow’ sound, the adhesive between the substrate and the tile has been compromised, leading to a loosening in its ‘stickiness’. A tell-tale sign you need tiling repair is when your tiles start to ‘tent’ or bulge, forming a protrusion on the surface. In the most serious cases, homeowners have witnessed floor tiles pop up several inches into the air, or in the case of wall tiles, falling onto the ground. To prevent injury, cover the affected area immediately with a cardboard prevent stepping on it directly.

Typically, dislodge tile cases are not localised onto a particular area, and if that is the case, replacing an extended area of tiles is the best option. This helps to ensure that there are no longer any loose or hollow tiles in the surrounding areas, which are likely to have a recurrence again if not properly rectified.
Do you suspect your bathroom or balcony to be leaky? You may conduct a simple visual check to assess if there could be a chance your bathroom or balcony needs re-waterproofing. You may check for the following visually:
- Loose or hollow tiles
- Persistent mouldy, damp appearance
- Peeling paint on adjacent wall outside
- Yellow stains on the ceiling under the shower.
If you have identified any of the above signs, you might require waterproofing and tiling works to be carried out. We are able to carry out professional waterproofing application works to prevent future seepage from occuring. Our waterproofing methods follow HDB and BCA standard ceiling leak procedures.
