At some point, every swimming pool owner will need to replace their pool tile. Whether it’s because of gradual wear and tear or due to an emergency pool repair, it’s a practice that needs to be done to ensure the longevity of your pool. Not doing so will make your pool look worse and diminish the enjoyment that you have in it. But when exactly is the right time to do so and what does the process entail? Here are some things that you need to know about pool tile replacement.

Signs It’s Time to Consider Tile Replacement

There are numerous signs that indicate it’s time to replace your swimming pool tile. One sign is the appearance of white deposits in your pool tile, this is likely a calcium buildup that usually occurs with older pools. Additionally, chipped or cracked pool tiles that can no longer be repaired will need to be replaced. Some pool tiles will even begin to fall off the walls, which should also let you know that a complete replacement is necessary. 

The Types of Swimming Pool Tiles

There are countless swimming pool tiling options available for both pool remodeling and construction projects. No matter what your design style is, you can be sure that you’ll find a pool tile that perfectly suits you and your backyard.
