TRIM FAQ’s

Does T.R.I.M work?

TRIM has been rectifying drummy, tenting and loose tiles for our customers for over 30 years. With a 100% success rate for injected areas!

How long until I can walk on the treated area?
Upon completion: Injected floors suitable for foot traffic a maximum of 12 hours following glue injection. Shower/wet areas not to be used for 2 days following glue injection External tiles not to be subjected to regular watering or saturation for 1 week prior to and 2 weeks following glue injection. Adhesive shadowing may be evident through tiles following glue injection. This will disappear as moisture within adhesive dissipates. Full cure achieved over 1 to 2 weeks although tiles may be used within recommended time frames
Will I need to leave my house?
There is absolutely no need to leave your home whilst we inject the floors/ walls. Our technicians will make no mess or dust whilst there. Our process is non-invasive so you can rest assured that your house will be left spotless
What is Method of Tile Rectification?

Site Assessment: All debonded (hollow) tiles and part tiles are identified and quantified by area or individual tiles. Suitability for rectification by injection is established and site-specific concerns are addressed (i.e. site access, grout colour and state of deterioration, pressure in tiling system, broken and cracked tiles, presence of waterproofing systems etc.).

Rectification process:

Set-up: Reinspect and identify tiles to be injected.
Adhesive delivery: Pressure inject ‘Injectabond’ to tile cavities monitoring glue flow until target contact coverage is achieved. Any tiles not injectable to desired contact coverage are noted and reported.
Re-grout: Excess adhesive is removed and injection points and deteriorated grouting are refurbished. Grouting will be matched as close as possible to original grout used, however, new grouting may be noticeable but will blend in as tiled areas are subjected to normal use and cleaning.
Clean-up: Glue residue and excess grout are removed and the tiles treated are cleaned.
Final inspection: Areas treated are inspected and checked against site assessment job sheet.
Site hand over: Information sheets and warranty statements are handed over to clients and future maintenance advised.

Can you fix cracked or chipped tiles?

As part of our services, we can lift and replace broken and cracked tiles. Should the customer not have any spares. We can try and source a replacement tile/s from a low visibility area such a pantry or under the fridge. If these are not available, we can always cut a feature tiled section with the client’s approval. Any little chips can be filled & matched with the Konig surface repair system- yes we are specially trained in carrying out surface repairs too!

What are the warranties?
‘Injectabond’ is a non-hazardous. Flexible adhesive which has been tested to a 25 year product life under normal use and standard chemical, thermal and moisture influences. ‘Injectabond’ exceeds ISO and Australian Standards. T.R.I.M’s Injectabond is the ONLY injectable tile glue on the market that is approved ‘fit for purpose’ glue. It carries an outstanding manufacturer warranty of 10years!
Is tile injection expensive?
Tile Injection can save you hundreds or even thousands on ripping up and replacing your existing tiles. Often, when a handful of tiles are affected, it can mean many more are in waiting to come loose or become hollow underneath. The cost of hiring a tiler to rip up the floor and re-tile can be huge! Not to mention the mess of having your tiles torn off and all the residual glue sanded off. Because tile injection does not require tiles to be removed, all it takes is a quick, mess-free ‘injection’ process and your tiles will be re-bonded and good as new! Our rates are competitive, and all quotes include a detailed breakdown of all work required, so you get no nasty surprises!
