Why Get New Tiles When You Can Regrout?
Bathroom tiles face a lot. Steam and standing water in your shower and bath can lead to mold, discoloration, and a pretty grimy looking bathroom. While your tiles are looking pretty sorry, they might not need to be replaced. Often, bathroom tiles can be restored beautifully by simply replacing and resealing the grout. Tiles are extremely durable, so if they aren’t chipped, scratched, or otherwise damaged, regrouting is probably your most cost-effective option. Here are some of the benefits.
Having grungy old grout makes your shower look dirty. Even with regular cleaning, it can be hard to pull mold and mildew out of grout once it has been compromised. If you are seeing cracks or crumbling in your grout, it is definitely time to make a change!
The cost of replacing the tile in your bathroom would be pretty high. If the tiles are in pretty good shape, you can save money by regrouting. Your tiles will be looking as good as new for a fraction of the cost. This is a green approach as well, preventing your perfectly good tiles from winding up in a landfill.
The regrouting process is fairly simple. Professionals can remove your moldy old grout, install new grout, and have your bathroom tiles sealed off in a matter of hours.
As your grout breaks down, your shower becomes much less waterproof. Letting this problem go for too long could lead to significant water damage underneath your tiles. It could also lead to tiles falling or breaking, which would require you to replace the whole shower. Regrouting is a great way to start fresh in your shower without having to fully replace everything – ensuring your shower is properly waterproofed in the process.
