Tile Injection Services- Residential

The no-mess, no-fuss solution for drummy tiles

What is Tile 'Delamination'?

Tile delamination occurs when your floor tiles become separated from the substrate, causing your tiles to become loose, tented or hollow sounding underfoot. Find out what causes this tile delamination here.

When left untreated, this delamination can spread throughout your floor. The previously accepted practice when faced with tile delamination was to rip up and replace the floor tiles, at great expense and hassle.

Do you have problems with drummy tiles? Tile Injection is the solution

Tile Injection
'Drummy' Tiles

If your tiles sound hollow or make a 'drummy' sound when stepped on, they are most likely de-laminated. You can test for de-lamination yourself by bouncing a golf ball on each tile to hear for hollow areas.

Tenting or Buckled tiles
Tenting Tiles

Tiles lifting off the floor, or 'tenting' throughout the floor is caused by a build up of pressure under the tiles. When the pressure gets too much, the tiles are left with nowhere to go, and they 'pop' or 'explode' off the floor!

Grout coming loose can be a symptom of shifting tiles and increased pressure. If your grout is crumbling or coming out of the grout lines around your floor tiles, it may mean your tiles are showing signs of de-lamination.

Signs your floor tiles are 'de-laminated'



So what's the solution?

Barefoot Floors' tile injection technology does not require you to rip up your tiles at all! A simple 'injection' using our exclusive tile restoration adhesive and your tiles will be re-bonded to the substrate, ready to walk on in just hours.

Barefoot Floors' expert team of tile injection specialists can assess your floor for damaged or 'de-laminated' tiles. These may not always be obvious to the untrained eye. If left untreated, these tiles will slowly but surely continue to come loose across your floor, causing more tenting, and more tiles to become hollow.


If left further still, these tiles can 'Explode' from the floor, due to a build up of pressure under the tiles. This pressure is what causes tiles to lift and de-laminate in the first place.

Once Barefoot Floors has a clear map of your affected tiles, our injection specialists can set about treating each tile. A simple, no mess procedure, tiles can be treated within minutes! Once the adhesive dries, the tile will re-bond for good. 

This entire process can be complete with the need to rip up, cut, smash or replace any tiles in your floor area. You can even stay in your house while the procedure is completed!

This solution will not only save you time, and money, but will also provide you with peace of mind that your floor will no longer have issues with delaminated, loose tiles.​
