Regrout Tiles


Remove Grout And Regrouting The Tiles


Over the years, your shower is used everyday by all occupants in the home.
That is a lot of hours of wear and tear. With years of constant use, your shower and bathroom grout will start to get a build up of mould, and general scum.

Grout is porous and the more you clean and scrub it, you actually weaken it and this is when mould can get a foot hold within the grout. The vicious cycle is then started – the more you clean and scrub, the weaker your grout becomes.

The more the grout breaks down the more uneven it looks and it starts to pit and crack, which appears as dirty areas. This starts to further break down the grout which is the first line of defense from water leaking behind the tiles and through the waterproofing membrane.

Why Regrout?


Most people, when they see broken and ugly tiles or a leaky shower, they think or say that “the old tile or shower needs to be replaced”. However, regrouting is a far better option than that. 

COST -EFFECTIVE

  • Regrouting can be less expensive than re-tiling and will leave your tiled surfaces looking like new again. On the contrary, a typical re-tiling project includes costs for:
  • Removal and disposal of old tile
  • Cost of installing and grouting the new tiles

Replacement of fixtures

  • Faucets, toilet, bathtub, vanity, shower screen, towel bar

CONVENIENCE 

  • Regrouting can usually be done with less downtime than re-tiling or a full renovation

ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLINESS

  • In today’s throw away society, regrouting is recycling. Your old tiles are going to end up in the trash. A simple rework will make them look new again

INCREASE YOUR PROPERTY VALUE

  • A well-presented property can increase the sale price by thousands of dollars, sell faster and appeal to a broader range of buyers

The Steps In Regrouting


This process not only refreshes the look of your floors, walls, or countertops but also maintains the integrity and cleanliness of the tiled areas. These are the steps we follow to get our fantastic results

Step 1: Preparation and Safety First

We have all the necessary tools and materials for the job. These include: a saw or a grout removal tool, vacuum, sponge, grout float, and the new grout. Saftery gear is also needed and this includes : long sleeves, long pants, protective eyewear and gloves to shield from dust and debris.

Step 2: Cleaning The Tiles

We clean all the tiles mechanically polishing the tiles so that they come up looking like new. No soap scum is left on the tiles.

Step 3: Removing Old Grout

The old grout is carefully using the grout saw or removal tool to a deep enough depth to allow the new grout to adhere properly. The area is then vacuumed to remove all the dust and debris to prepare for the new grout.

Step 4: Mixing and Applying New Grout

Following the manufacturer’s instructions the new grout is prepared and we use the correct application device which can include spatulas and a caulking gun. The grout is applied at a 45-degree angle, ensuring it fills the gaps thoroughly. We remove excess grout from the tiles surface as we work. This makes clean up so much faster.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

After allowing the grout to set or cure as per the grout’s instructions, we then clean the tile surfaces gently. This step might need to be repeated several times to ensure no haze remains on the tiles.
