The Content Of The Article:

Our house was built in 2004. Our tiled floor is cracked in many places. We would like to have it redone; but we do not find a solution (we are afraid that the cracks will come back). What do you advise us?

It is likely that the problem of cracking is caused by the slab that coats the floor heating, not by the tiles. Replacing the tiles with a new one will not solve anything, it is likely to crack again. It is the whole system that should ideally be replaced. An intermediate solution is to remove the old tile, and to use for the installation of the new tile glue and flexible joints, designed for the installation of tiles on wood supports, likely to be affected by dimensional variations. The risk of cracks will be reduced, but not completely excluded, if the slab has been poorly designed or poorly implemented.
