What Causes Lifting Tiles?
You can find a number of reasons that lead to tiles lifting, tenting or cracking.
Sometimes, if there is too much moisture, it can cause your tiles to lift.
Often, the moisture rises through the concrete and as a result, it causes the tiles to lose their bond and lift. Such leaks can come from foundation issues or plumbing issue.
Excess water pushes tile up, and they take on a tented appearance.
If the flooring underneath your tiles isn’t installed correctly, tiles eventually lift. It might be a few years after being installed, and if you have purchased a home and this happens, you will need a tile removal company to help out.
Lifting floor tiles may be from a moving surface below your tiles. The surface can expand because of the weather, and which loosens the tiles. Also, your concrete may crack and make your tiles lift.
If the weather is cold and the floor contracts, it can be as you put on the heating; it creates pressure and possible lifting tiles.
