Tiling grout is used to fill in the gaps between tiles in your bathroom, shower, kitchen, and other places. It also holds the tile in place to the base of your floor. Generally, tile grout is cement-based and quite dense. It can get mouldy and discoloured, which negatively impacts how your tiles look.
Before you replace your tiles, consider replacing the grout. It is much more cost-effective and can achieve that gleaming clean look and feel you want!
Now that we’ve covered what grout is, let’s talk about regrouting and the process for replacing your old grout. Bathroom Surgeon is highly experienced in regrouting jobs, as you can see from our before and after pictures.
Regrouting involves removing old grout from the spaces between tiles (the seams) and filling them up with new grout. Provided your tiles are still in good condition, some new grout can do wonders.
It’s not an invasive job and it can be fairly quick, but that depends on the surface area that needs regrouting. The grout can be removed manually or with tools, depending on what work needs to get done.
You don’t need a full-blown renovation every time you spot a cracked tile. Before you even consider that, remember that regrouting your tiles costs just a small fraction of a renovation. It’s also far less messy than going to extremes – not to mention less wasteful and timely.
Depending on the size of the project underway, regrouting your tiles can take about a day or two. It’s a convenient, and far more practical, solution to sprucing up your space.
