Regrouting Existing Tile
When a ceramic tile job begins to look old and dingy, before you give in and install new tile, you should consider a regrout job. Which is done by removing the old grout from the seams and packing them with fresh, new grout. Provided the tiles themselves are in good condition and are still solidly adhered, regrouting the tile will make the entire installation look brand-new.
Grout Removal: First step we take is carefully cutting out your existing grout, which is a dirty dusty and very time consuming task. All the grout has to get removed deep enough to make room for the new grout to adhere to the old grout and stick between the tiles.
New Grout Install: New maintenance free grout will be mixed by hand and installed into the old grout lines. Its vital to make sure you get the grout consistency right, if the grout is to dry it will dry to fast and not have good adhesion and if the grout consistency is to wet it wont stay in the groutlines and want to goop out.
Finish: After allowing the grout to dry over. All the tiles get polished down with a microfiber cloth to remove any leftover grout haze left on the tiles. After the tiles are polished down the regrout job is complete. Give the grout at least 24 hours to cure prior to use.
Yes, dust during regrout is inevitable. There is no way of removing the existing grout without raising dust. We usually like to set air movers into bathroom windows to direct dusty air outside to avoid it backtracking into our clients homes. We always advise our clients to cover up anything in near by rooms with plastic sheeting prior to the work being done to protect dust from settling on it.
No, the grout that we use is self sealing and never needs to be sealed or unsealed. It doesn’t hurt to apply more sealer over it but is not needed.
You must allow your grout to cure for at least 24 hours before exposing the regrouted surface to any use.
Most showers or floor can be regrouted in one day.
Our team members will present you with a grout color sample kit on the first day so you can choose the color you want.
