Can ceramic tiles be reglazed?


We're just noticing that some of the tiles have no glaze after they've already been laid & grouted. Is there a product that can put the glaze on these tiles? Please help!!

Sure...all you gotta do is figure out how to put them in a kiln and fire them at about 2250 degrees for a period of time.

Take them up and replace with good ones.

I will appreciate any good advice for my problem. I'm on a very tight budget & my brother laid my ceramic tile for me. There are 8 tiles in a rectangle that have no sheen to them. Otherwise, the floor looks fantastic. There has got to be something out there that I can try to get those 8 tiles to have sheen (or something to match close enough).

you should be asking your brother - WHY'D YOU USE 'EM ? ? ? other'n that, chop out the old ones, go get 8 more, & replace 'em like anyone else'd do,,, how difficult is this to figure out ? ? ?

no matter how good you are, even the best pro can't get 5gal into a 4gal bucket ! ! ! tight budget for 8 tiles ? ? ? you're joking, right ? ? ? you can't afford EIGHT TILES ? ? ?

This post should be moved to the DIYNETWORK forum. There are many such silly questions there and they have the lack of knowledge to offer many useless suggestions for cheap fixes. Behr paint should have a good match. To glaze tiles you need to use a foam roller to apply a matching glaze. Local YMCA craft classes can help with this. Then set the house on fire to bake the glaze.

Everyone seems to making snide remarks and skirting your queation. I am assuming these are glazed tiles, and that you know the difference?? Are you sure the problem is not dried grout that did not get wiped off?? Was it a standard grout, not an epoxy grout??
