3 Reasons It’s Important to Fix Pool Tile Problems, Scotch Plains, New Jersey

Pool tiles can turn a basic swimming pool into a beautiful backyard design element. And while there are many other benefits to pool tiles, Gutierrez Pool Plastering—a pool remodeling contractor in Plainfield, NJ—explains that homeowners must protect their investment.

Whether all your tiles are falling off or you just have a cracked pool tile here and there, these problems can ruin the fun of your next pool party. As full-service pool decorating and repair specialists, Gutierrez Pool Plastering says it’s important to maintain and fix each and every pool tile in order to:

  • Keep A Fresh Design: There are many different pool tiles out there to choose from that can really add a splash of personality to your pool design. However, if they become broken, chipped, or discolored, the beauty of the pool will be lost. In addition, pool tiles are generally easier to clean than other pool surfaces, so it’s worth keeping them pristine.
  • pool tile Plainfield, NJPrevent Injuries: If a pool tile is broken or chipped, its sharp edges can cut anyone who comes into contact with it. Replacing these tiles is an easy way to avoid painful cuts and scratches.
  • Reduce Efflorescence Buildup: If your pool tiles are broken, leaving the pool’s underlying surface exposed, magnesium and calcium from the grout can get into the water. This creates a white powdery deposit—also known as efflorescence—along the pool’s surface. While efflorescence is not hazardous to your health, it can build up fast and be a pain to clean up. Keeping your tiles intact will help reduce the amount of buildup over time.

It’s also important to take pool tile issues seriously because they may indicate underlying problems with the actual pool structure. For instance, if your pool tiles are buckling off the surface, the concrete beneath them may be cracked—a problem that can grow into quite an expensive issue.

While pool tile repairs are important, according to Gutierrez Pool Plastering, these problems are usually resolved with quick fixes.
