Why Re-Grouting Your Tile is a Job Best Left to The Grout Medic of St. Louis
If your tile’s grout is old, dirty, dingy, chipped, cracked, or all of the above, then it’s time to consider re-grouting. This is much less costly than replacing all of the tiles and it very well could be your grout that’s causing your tiled floor or surface to look old and dirty. While you may think of your grout as a background item, it has an enormous impact on how nice or unsightly your tile appears. While you may be considering re-grouting yourself, you need to take into account whether it’s truly a job you’re cut out for. Do you have the correct equipment to remove all of the old bad grout? Are you going to remove all of the grout or just the bad grout? Do you have exact color-matched grout to apply to the removed grout? If you aren’t 100% certain on all of these questions, please, leave it to the experts at The Grout Medic of St. Louis.
Re-grouting requires learning how to correctly remove all of the old, bad grout in order to ensure your tile is properly sealed. If you don’t completely remove all of the old bad grout and then apply new grout on top, the finishing look is going to be less than impressive. There are some re-grouting companies in St. Louis that will apply new grout over old grout, but it’s highly advised against doing so. Why is that? We want to ensure we have a clean, or clean as possible, surface to which we apply the new grout. This will ensure that water won’t seep through into your floor. Additionally, we’ll need to transition the new caulk into the old caulk. You obviously aren’t aiming for a two-tone grout, right?
We will ensure your new grout blends seamlessly with your old grout and will also show you how to keep your new grout looking great for years to come. While we’re at your home, providing your free consultation, we can also inspect other areas of your tiled surfaces, if you’d prefer, and provide you with a free estimate for those repairs, too. Remember, most re-grouting jobs only take one day and you can usually use the re-grouted area within a day of its application. We aim to ensure your re-grouted tile looks nearly brand new once we’ve completed the project. Furthermore, once completed, we’ll clean up so well that you won’t even notice we were ever there – except that your tile and grout look fantastic.
