Causes of Ceramic Cracks

Basically, the damage to the ceramics is 2, the first is in the ground floor house (bottom), this damage is called down, the collapsed case can occur only on 2 or 3 tiles only, but some are happening on the whole floor space. Let us know what causes the floor of the tiles to collapse, the cause is the falling ground level under the pairs of the ceramic floor. The fall of the soil is caused, when the process of soil when building is not compacted, due to the scooped material from the chunk of dismantling so that there are still cavities between the lumps should use the ground scoop (sandstone), not through the process of job runs (coarse cast) layer before installing ceramic floor. The solution is to remove/dismantle the broken tile floor, if damaged 2 or 3 then do the excavation within a radius of 1 meter with a depth of 30 cm, fill it again with soil and solidify then fill it with sand then smooth, the next process cast coarse layer above before installing the ceramic. For that you need a reliable power concrete crack repair in order to avoid mistakes in repairing the floor tiles in your home.

The second damage is on the tile floor on the top floor (high rise building). Damage that often happens is the opposite of the ground floor, if on the ground floor of ceramic collapsed, if on the floor above the ceramic flopping, this incident is caused by the shrinkage of material, the movement of the building structure due to the condition of the shock on the road or earthquake, there is no gap / the distance between the ceramics and the walls of the building called “Nat”, sometimes ceramic endings that meet with walls clamped with plaster walls. Usually flopping cases occur in the middle of the space and extend as follows the axis line, the process of interlocking each other thrust between ceramics because experiencing shrinkage and if caused by shocks, but there is no gap to shift.

In the ceramic installation process new mandatory to make a distance “Nat” 3 mm on the right left to meet with old ceramics. And at the ceramic end of the wall is also given a 3 mm thick grout. After the ceramic floor installation process (especially the house) is finished then the contents of “grout nat” with fine sand and topped with cement filled with grout. If in many-story buildings such as for schools, offices, hotels etc., then to fill the gap is usually using the material / special material filler grout.
