Tile & Grout Repair Cost
There is almost nothing that adds shine to a home like a beautiful tile floor or backsplash. A good tile job is generally somewhat costly, and it should be looked at and treated like a long-term investment. Unfortunately, even the most well-maintained tile can become dingy or cracked with time, and these repairs can be as costly as they are complicated.

First and foremost, the damage must be assessed before a cost can be determined. If the job is on the simpler side, tile maintenance can be relatively inexpensive – as little as a couple hundred dollars or less. For instance, if a small bathroom needed re-grouting, this is a service that involves less material and more labor. Fortunately, a few hours should complete the job – again, a price of $100 to $150 is very reasonable. A larger tiled floor will naturally increase the price, but not by a large amount. For something like a full apartment, expect to pay in the area of $400 to $600. The size of the individual tiles may also affect pricing to some degree.
Repairing broken tiles is a whole different situation. Although it is generally not difficult to purchase matching replacement tile, there are many more labor variables involved in the process. The extent of costs depends on the number of broken tiles, their proximity to each other as well as the quality of the tile job itself. For example, labor costs would be cheaper for five broken tiles touching each other than two different scattered tiles.
Whoever is doing the repair must ensure that the concrete holding the tile down is level with existing tiles, in addition to maintaining the existing pattern. The more complex this is, the more the repair will cost. To repair tile, expect a figure ranging from a couple hundred dollars to near, or in excess of, $1,000.
