It’s very easy to overlook a single broken tile on the basis that it’s too complicated or costly to replace.

Ace’s Home Expert, Lou Manfredini takes you through the simple step-by-step process on how to remove and replace the damaged tile:

Helpful Tips

  1. Once you have removed the grout, use a piece of cloth to manage the impact of the hammer when breaking up the old tile to remove it from the floor surface.
  2. Pre-mixed grout and adhesive all-in-one is a time saver when making this type of small repair. Use grout sealant to prevent stains and water damage.
  3. Use Thin Set in an area with a lot of moisture or pressure – it works like mortar or cement, but only takes a thin layer to bind surfaces. Pre-mixed thin set is convenient for small repairs.
  4. Tile shards are sharp so be sure to protect your eyes and hands when removing the broken tile.
  5. Follow the instruction and recommended drying time for the adhesive and grout you use.
