Restore and Resurface old Tile Without Removal.
Are you letting old, stained or out of date tile flooring ruin your interior décor? We don’t blame you. Replacing old tile floors can be a real hassle and really expensive. There is the cost of removing the old tile; the dust, the dirt, the hammering the drilling. Then the cost of disposal. And once you do finally decide on the type of tile you want, there is the days long process of laying the mortar, setting the tiles and applying the grout, all of which means that your area is off limits for a considerable amount of time. New tile can create a variety of issues with transitions to doorways, cabinets and you will have to remove any moldings. And the bigger the surface that needs to be retiled, the bigger the headache. New tile still requires regular grout cleaning and tile repair is tricky if you can’t find another identical piece. In order to avoid having to remove and then retile their flooring, many people simply try to hide old and ugly tile under rugs or use tile refinishing kits or paint to try to obscure ugly and old tile. These solutions only go so far, and they rarely last. Consider tile resurfacing instead. Check out our available finishes and colors.

If you have old tile that you want to remove or replace, consider resurfacing your old tile before you go through the expense and labor of removing the old tile. Resurfacing tile is not as common as tile refinishing, but it is catching on due to its cost effectiveness, ease of installation and long-term durability. Below we compiled a list of frequently asked questions about how tile can be resurfaced.
Simply put, tile resurfacing is the process of overlaying a concrete surface or other surfacing material over tile. Like concrete resurfacing, floor and wall tile resurfacing reduces the costs associated with removing the old surface material. With Semco FL’s resurfacing products, there is no need to demo, grind, drill, just clean the tile and apply the resurfacing product.
Whether tile resurfacing will work or not is dependent on the type of resurfacing materials and products you choose to use. The number 1 reason why resurfacing does not work is that the resurfacing materials used are of sub-par quality and do not create a strong bond with the tile surface. A good tile resurfacing product will have a molecular bonding technology that creates a mechanically interlocking bond.
Yes. Tile refinishing involves removing the old tile glaze, applying a spray coating and reglazing the original tile. The old tile remains and is given a renewed luster. But reglazing requires the use of dangerous chemicals that are toxic, so use caution if you plan to refinish and reglaze. Tile resurfacing, on the other hand, completely covers the old tile without removal or toxic chemicals. The new surface is seamless and can come in many colors and textures. There are safer ways to seal tile like with RexPro, except this will not change the color or shape of the surface, instead, it will protect and enhance the tile.
Yes. Semco resurfacing products can resurface floor and wall tiles.
How long tile resurfacing lasts depends on what material is used. A resurfacing product for tile that uses mechanically interlocking molecular bonds like X-Bond Seamless Stone can last many years into the future, roughly 15 or so years before any wear occurs.
Semco resurfacing products give you the ability to resurface many types of tile including ceramic, porcelain, cement, marble, limestone, granite and mosiac.
No. Epoxy overlays tend to delaminate and break away from the flooring in the presence of moisture. Since most resurfacing applications are in highly trafficked areas that are exposed to moisture, Semco designed a resurfacing material designed for the most heavily used and environmentally exposed surfaces. Semco is a stone aggregate resurfacing material specifically engineered to adhere to all solid surfaces at the molecular level, creating an interlocking bond with the original surface.
