Tile Injection-Apartments & Commercial Projects
Barefoot Floors is THE most effective solution for large scale tile de-lamination.
Are you experiencing tile
de-lamination on a commercial scale? Tile Injection is THE most effective solution
It has been a common sight for us over the past 15 years of tiling & tile injection- large commercial projects and residential apartment buildings that are experiencing large scale de-lamination. That include loose tiles, tenting or peaking tiles, drummy tiles and cracked grout. And we aren't just talking about small isolated areas- often the WHOLE area has let go.
This is common in large tiled areas such as:
Why is this happening?
There are many reasons that your tiles may be de-laminating. Where it gets messy for building managers, project managers, construction companies etc is when it happens on such a large scale. Often when dealing with multiple level apartment buildings or wide open tiled spaces such as in shopping centres, a small issue can quickly spread. If pressure is built up in one area, you can bet it will let go in other areas.
So why is tile injection the answer?
When dealing with such large scale commercial de-lamination, your options are limited. Either rip up and relay the entire floor or leave the problem to grow and get worse over time.
Ripping up and replacing tiles on such a scale is a huge headache for a number of reasons:
Ripping up and replacing tiles is expensive. It can cost you both in actual trade fees as well as the cost of having to shut down your business or remove tenants for multiple days or weeks whilst the replacing work is completed.
It is a huge disruption. Ripping up tiles and replacing them is messy, noisy and wasteful. You will likely have to shut down your project, remove tenants or cause great annoyance to anyone residing within the building whilst you rip up and replace.
3. You do not know if you are treating the actual problem at the cause Barefoot Floors does not look to just inject and leave. We look to find the REASON that the de-lamination is happening, and we can then go about solving the root of the problem first, to ensure that once your tiles are injected, they stay that way, and no further issues pop up.
Tile Injection allows you to restore your tiles without the need to rip up and re-lay. There is minimal dust, noise and disruption to the tenants, occupants or your building. Anyone residing within that building can go about their daily lives uninterrupted.
Not to mention the cost factor and time factor- Tile Injection is quick, easy and mostly more cost effective than ripping up and replacing tiles on such a massive scale.

Case Study: Aqua Vista Apartments
Barefoot Floors inspected the apartments at 'Aqua Vista' in QLD's Sunshine Coast in November 2018, and found that a large number of the apartments showed signs of de-lamination. Tiles were tenting off the floor, and a large area of tiles in most apartments showed the tell-tale hollow sound of a tile that had de-laminated from the substrate.
It was found upon inspection that the tiles had been placed under immense pressure due to a number of factors including shifts in the building structure and a lack of expansion lines placed throughout the floor to protect from pressure build-ups.
Barefoot Floors provided a full inspection and quote to repair the tiles in each of the apartments affected. Barefoot Floors worked directly with Building Manager Edwin Brak, who arranged for entry to each apartment to complete the restoration.
Barefoot Floors can cover up to 20sqm of floor area in a day, meaning that many apartments had their entire floors restored within less than 24 hours!
