My wife and I recently discovered that the tiles in our brand new home
were not securely installed. A tile expert came in and test each of
our tiles with a metal rod and found that 2/3 of our downstairs floor
(18" X 18" tiles) were "loose". We contacted the company which sold
us the house and were informed that they would resolve the problem by
drilling holes somewhere in the tiles and injecting a substance that
would secure the tiles. I don't know much about tiles, and would like
to know if this is a good solution. Drilling holes in the tile,
didn't sound like the best idea. I would have thought that
reinstalling new tile would insure a better outcome. What do you
Having tile with a lot of holes in it would not be my first or last choice.
Who had the tile installed? Contact them and see if there is a warranty.
Other wise contact your real-estate agent and a lawyer.
This did not get picked up on the inspection before purchase. hummmm
If the tile is loose, then it should pop up pretty easily. I would be
demanding a complete redo. Gad what a mess your going to live through
