An Explanation as to Why Pool Tiles May Come Off

In-ground pools are a great way to maximize the use of your outdoor space, as any Kansas City pool builder will tell you. While pools can be great, they can also be a lot of work to maintain. Over time, you may even find yourself dealing with problems like cracked or loose tiles, even tiles that have fallen off.

Why Tiles Fall off of Pools

If you were to ask a Kansas City pool builder why the tiles in your pool were falling off, he or she might not be able to identify the cause without actually looking at the pool. The builder will most likely tell you, however, that it is probably a sign of an underlying problem. If your pool tiles were installed correctly the first time, they should not crack or fall off. If you did not hire an expert to install your pool, however, you may find yourself dealing with problems a few years down the line.

One of the most common reasons pool tiles fall off is that something behind them starts pushing them out – in many cases, it is a tree root growing through the concrete behind the tile. Another common problem is a crack in the expansion joint between the pool deck and the coping. In other cases, it may simply be a product of the freeze-thaw cycle if the pool deck or coping was not properly sealed after installation. Correcting any of these problems may be a bigger job than you want to handle yourself, so be sure to hire an experienced pool builder to do it for you.
