    Good morning

    We've had a gradually cracking tile in our kitchen. We moved in late 2019 and noticed it about 6 months later, it's been getting gradually more cracked. There's also another hairline crack on a nearby tile and some cracked mortar

    We'll need to replace it at some point, but I'd hate to do this and the crack re-emerge. Also slightly worried about potential movement? Thankfully no cracks elsewhere

    What are they on?

    Is the underfloor concrete or wood?

    Probably laid incorrectly with small voids, air bubbles in cement .

    Respectfully, how do you know it's a concrete floor?
