QUESTIONPeeling Ceramic Tile? - The top layer is peeling from my ceramic tiles. Have you ever heard of this problem?
ANSWERANSWER - If there is something peeling from your ceramic tile, then there must have been a sealer applied to it. The glaze on a glazed ceramic tile will chip off, but not peel off. On unglazed tiles, sealers will peel if there is excessive moisture coming up from under the tile. On glazed tiles the peeling could be that the sealer was applied too heavily and it peeled off the impervious surface or they used the wrong kind of sealer or there was a contaminate on the tile that did not allow the sealer to attach adequately.
There are sealer strippers that can be applied to remove any existing sealer so you can reapply correctly. Check in Cleaners and Sealers in the Resource column under Expert Answers for names of manufacturers. Good Luck!
