Ceramic Tile Repair

What You'll Need
Grout saw
Glass cutter
Tile adhesive
Masking tape

Oddly enough, even if a single ceramic tile on your kitchen or bathroom wall breaks you'll suddenly feel like you're living in a transient hotel. Luckily, you can replace it using a few simple steps:

  • Use a grout saw to remove the grout around it.
  • Score the tile using a glasscutter to cut lines from corner to corner in an "X" shape.
  • Wearing goggles, tap the center point with a chisel and hammer. It should break neatly into four pieces.
  • Clean the area of remnant grout and tiles, smear adhesive on the replacement tile, center it in the hole and keep it in place with masking tape.
