What is Regrouting?
Tile regrouting is a process that will dramatically improve the appearance of a tiled area at a fraction of the cost of replacing the tiles. After all, it is not always the tile that makes an area look ugly but often the unsightly, discolored grout. By itself, the tile in a shower enclosure is almost maintenance free. With an occasional wipe-down, it can look good for years. Grout, however, is a different story—eventually it’s going to break down. Large cracks and crumbly chunks are alarming, but smaller fractures can be trouble too. Fractures, and stains that won’t wash out, may indicate spots where water is wicking in and working its way behind the tiles. Sooner or later, that water will weaken the adhesive that’s holding the tile or cause rot in the walls. When that happens, the only solution is to tear out the tile and start from scratch.
The good news is that if you catch it in time, you can quickly and easily give tiled surfaces a new lease on life—and a fresh look—by applying a new layer of grout.
The final step after cleaning is to apply new caulk. The caulk is the weakest link between water damaging your walls and floors so it is important to apply it correctly. We thoroughly caulk between all tile wall planes. This will ensure that water does not get between your tiles and into your walls.
