Cracks Moved to The Tiles

Postby irfan » Sun Apr 01, 2012 5:35 am


My kitchen wall has crack line which has now moved down towards the floor. The wall up to 5 feet is covered with ceramic tiles. and the crack also appeared in them. If i plaster the wall again and replace the tiles with new ones then what is the probability that this crack will not appear again.

1. Scratch out all grout with a small chisel and a hammer. Regrout.
2. Rip out tiles and refloat floor. Look at posts showing how to finish a plain screet floor. Seal it, live with the screet floor until you can afford new tiles. DON'T use the same tiler!
