Everything you need to know about finding a Grouting Business
Grouting really is the key to having tile work that not only looks fantastic but will last for a very long time. If you need to need to have new grouting work done or your tiles need regrouting, here’s what you need to know.
What is Grouting and Regrouting?
Grouting is the process of adding new grout in between s on walls, floors or any other surface in order to strengthen the tile work and to fill any gaps. Grout is also necessary to protect the tiles and the surface below from water. The grout is applied after the tiles have been laid on adhesive, and it comes in a range of colours and textures, allowing you to create completely different looks to your tiles.
Regrouting is the process of replacing existing grout that has become discoloured, mouldy or damaged. The old grout is removed using special tools, and then the tiles and the areas between are thoroughly cleaned and dried. The new grout can then be applied. Newer grout formulas have anti-mould additives in them so that the new grout stays looking great for longer. Grout sealers are also used to prolong the life of the grout.
When Might Grouting or Regrouting be Required?
Grouting or regrouting may be required in a number of situations. Grouting is required when new tiles are laid on walls, floors, benchtops, and so on. Grout is absolutely necessary in this situation to strengthen and protect the new tile work. Regrouting is necessary when old grout has become damaged in the shower, bathroom, kitchen splashback, floor, balcony, or hearth. In this case, regrouting can be much cheaper and much more effective than retiling an area, especially if the tiles themselves are in good condition.
Who Does Grouting or Regrouting?
Grouting or regrouting can be performed by a qualified tiler very easily. However, it can also be done by other professionals such as experienced handymen, who can perform other jobs around the home at the same time!
