Mexican Tile Renew Project on Bird Key Where Tile had Not Been Refinished in Decades and Painter’s Tape Marks Had Ruined the Finish.

Monday, December 9, 2019

Mexican Tile Renew Project on Bird Key Where Tile had Not Been Refinished in Decades and Painter’s Tape Marks Had Ruined the Finish. The damage to the Mexican Tile aka Saltillo Tile flooring is caused by the fact that the polymer in the painter’s tape and the polymer in the sealer are closely related. The close match creates a tremendous bond to the tile sealer. When the painter’s tape is pulled up the tile sealer is pulled up along with the tape. Even worse is that the Mexican tile sealer has a tremendous bond to the crust of the tile.

MEXICAN TILE RENEW PROJECT IN SARASOTA FL WHERE OUTDOOR TILE HAS A EFFLORESCENCE OR WHITE SPOTS PROBLEM.

Sunday, November 17, 2019

MEXICAN TILE RENEW PROJECT IN SARASOTA FL WHERE OUTDOOR TILE HAS A EFFLORESCENCE OR WHITE SPOTS PROBLEM. Efflorescence is a crystalline deposit on surfaces of masonry, exterior Mexican tile, stucco or concrete, there is no real cure for it other than removing the source of the moisture. It is whitish in appear­ance, and is sometimes referred to as “whiskers”. Efflorescence has been a problem for many years, and is a topic of much controversy. 

The formation of these salt deposits are not mysteries. They are, for the most part, water-soluble salts that come from many possible sources to mar and detract from an other­wise beautiful and serviceable structure. First of all, there must be water present to dissolve and trans­port the salts, remove the source of water and your almost there. Efflorescence, the white spots, that forms on the exterior Mexican tile of the patio in photo above. Naturally, Saltillo tile is not terribly strong or hard. Although it is comparable to other natural stone tiles such as slate or granite it can chip and crack. 

When used as exterior tiling, it can only be used in very mild climates, as harsh weather can damage the tile, it needs almost annual upkeep. Therefore, it is very rarely used for outdoor purposes these days, though in very warm climates like the Gulf coast of Florida, well maintained and sealed Saltillo tile makes for a nice tile flooring option for a patio. Typically, Saltillo tiles should be sealed after they have been installed and are completely dried and clear of extra dirt and debris and annual upkeep is highly recommended for exterior applications.  

Since humidity has a definite effect on whether or not the white salt spots appear on exterior Mexican tile, it can be assumed that efflores­cence is a seasonal problem. The intensity of efflorescence increases after rainy winter seasons, de­creases in spring, and by summer has practically disappeared.

Reviews for ‘Mexican Tile Renew’ Sarasota Fl with a South West Fl Better Business Bureau A+ Rating.

REVIEW…Travis J. St Pete, FL 1/25/2016: Had a big problem with old Mexican tile in a house built in the 1950’s in St Pete Fl that just would not clean up whatever we did. Planned on having it all ripped out and replaced, it was so bad, but the cost for 1,200 sq feet would have been almost $8,500 and a big mess. I got a hold of ‘Mexican Tile Renew’ in Sarasota, they came out and gave me a very fair price to strip clean and reseal all the old Mexican tile, I was amazed at how they got it all done in one day and the floors now look beautiful. 


REVIEW…Luda S. Sarasota, FL 2/4/2016: I wanted to thank
‘Mexican Tile Renew’ for the great job they have done (inside and outside) the property. The owner of the company stayed on the job for the entire duration — five + hours and worked side by side with his helpers. The result was — magnificent cleaned up old, damaged tiles inside of the house. They also cleaned and renewed the outside pool deck. It looked great until the pool company came and ruined all that great work. The owner was gracious and came back to review the damage done by negligent pool company and fixed the problem by stripping and sealing the space again. I was on a deadline to finish the job and I cannot thank them enough. It’s a good idea to consult with them and see if you need to clean or prepare your space (floor) prior to their arrival. The sealer was clear and was dry within few hours. Thank you so much, ‘Mexican Tile Renew’ really, really appreciated it your hard work and advice.

REVIEW…Jim B. Sarasota, FL 3/15/2016: I called Mexican Tile Renew to take care of a pool deck area that leads to a kitchen and laundry area in a house that had not been cleaned and sealed in many years. My wife and I took over a foreclosed home in the Gulf Gate area of Sarasota Fl and we needed to get the home ready for sale, as it stood, the Mexican Tile was a big distraction with old rubber pad stuck to the Mexican tile in areas of the kitchen where mats had been laying and the pool area tile was covered with black mold and all marked up. Bill and his crew from Mexican Tile Renew showed up at 8:30 am and proceeded to strip off all the old sealer, rubber padding and removed all the mold, they cleaned and sanded tiles as needed and put on 4 coats of a clear sealer that made the Mexican tiles come alive, very good job. We were able to sell the house within 10 days, thanks Mexican Tile Renew.
