Why Re-grout - Benefits of Re-grouting

 

Price - Your tiled areas can look "as new" for a fraction of the cost of retiling or a full renovation. Retiling / full renovation usually including the following costs:

  • The new tiles themselves
  • Removal & disposal of the old tiles
  • Charge for laying and grouting the new tiles
  • And in the bathroom, possibly also
  • Plumbing
  • Waterproofing
  • Replacement fixtures and fitting (taps, toilet, bath, vanity, shower screen, towel rails)
  • Time - In, out and done in a day or two rather than coordinating plumbers and tilers and other tradesmen over multiple visits.
  • Convenience - re-grouting can usually be carried out with much less down time than retiling or a full renovation.
  • Environment - in today’s disposable society, why strip and replace a structurally sound tiled area to end up in land fill? A simple make-over will bring it up looking as new! Would you throw out a picture just because the frame is ugly???

 

Will sealing the grout in my shower stop mold developing?

The short answer is No. Sealing your grout will help to protect the grout and also make it easier to clean but it does not change the environment. A shower / bathroom is obviously a wet area, with high levels of humidity – the perfect environment for mold to flourish. The best steps you can take to prolong the life of your grout and prevent mold build up are to use a quality grout with an anti-mold additive, seal the new grout, keep the area as well ventilated as possible and avoid the use of harsh chemicals and cleaners.
