We have an old house (~65 years).
In the process of tearing up the (pink, wtf) ceramic tiles of the
floor, we discovered they were tiled directly over the original
"honeycomb" tiles. (My wife thinks they may even be marble).
She loves this floor original floor and wants to keep it. I don't
really care, its a floor.
- There are a 2 small cracks (7 inches long, probably thickness of a
business card - perhaps id refer to them as hairline cracks).
- In one location the tile is completely broke - maybe 3 tiles.
- We should be able to "salvage' some of the tiles from where the new
bathtub is going in, as its larger.
- My wife says the tiles are "very thin". I didnt get down on my hands
and knees to look, but she knows how think they are now.
- It looks old. It dosent look bad. But you wouldn't mistake this for
new tiles (as expected).
- Our contractor said the tile was probably laid on a conrete like
pad, which has cracked and cracked the tile along with it. This makes
- The floor is by no means even/level. I can detect indentations
visually and by feel. (but not that bad, about what youd expect in a
65 yr old house)
The question, though, is if its possible to "restore" this floor.
That is have someone come in and fill the cracks, try to replace the
tiles, make it look better.
This is a shot in the dark, I have no idea if this is feasbile or not.
Basically Im asking if the equivilent of a hardwood flooring restorer
exists but for tile :)
Much thanks for any help you can give!
