Art Tiles & Encaustic Tiles
There is really no substitute for the texture and patina of old tiles, worn by generations of foot steps. But, when these tiles break, flake, or begin to fall apart from loosening or water exposure, then it is time to take protective steps. Urban Revivals can repair art tiles and encaustic tiles, both glazed and unglazed, so that these forms of degradation are less noticeable to the eye.
