Tile cracks---hairline

Sirs: Home less than one year old. Entire house is tiled with large size tiles--24" x 24". PROBLEM: Several tiles have hairline cracks. One in particular in bathroom runs from diagonally corner to corner. Crack has not opened up or separated yet and is just an unsightly hair line crack. Builder won't replace. QUESTION: Anyone have a suggestion to fix crack(s) without removing tile? I have some thin pourable silicone, but it won' do much to conceal the crack.

THANX,

REBEL

Won't replace huh, threaten him, do you have a warranty on this home?, he's responsible, tell him he'll be hearing from your lawyer and small claims court if not taken care off.

NO, there is no fix, it all has to come up and be redone, someone screwed up big time and it will only get worse, there are many reasons that could have caused this, without alot more info. won't get into that now.

Yep, with a builder you can usually get what you want, but you have to argue it...
