I guess the previous owner had an old bathtub/tiles sprayed with some
kind of white enamel paint or something because some of the edges of the
tiles that are hit by water constantly are starting to peel/crack off
exposing the original ugly tile underneath.
I bought "porc-a-fix" at home depot and was going to give that a try to
prevent water from getting into the tiles and peeling it inside out, but
is there a more common way to touch-up the tiles treated with such an
overcoat? Are there spray-on glossy white enamel paints I should use
Any tips/suggestions much appreciated!
Ever heard the term "cob job"? Sounds like the prior owner did a real cob
job with your walls. Tear it all down and do it right. It'll be a pain in
the ass, but you'll feel so good when it looks gorgeous, and the
installation is as bulletproof as you can make it.
Tile is not failing at all. I used the porc-a-fix and I think it should
do the job of preventing any further peeling. I'll go to home depot
though and see what kind of good oil-based enamel in white they have,
tnx for the tip...I'll also see if they sell anything specifically for
this purpose, tiles are in good shape otherwise
Home depot will not have the paint you need. Go to a real paint
store. I go to sherwin williams. They call theirs "insustrial
enamel" and it is a real problem fixer, will adhere to almost any
problem surface. Just remember mineral spirits or paint thinner for
clean up on oils.
