What is Tile Regrouting?
Tile regrouting is when the existing old grout is removed and replaced with new grout. The old grout is removed with a specialised power tool set to the required depth of approximately 3 to 4 mm. As with any maintenance procedure, it is most important to have the correct tools to do the required work, & that the preparation is carried out correctly for the correct final outcome. Once this has been completed, the area is then cleaned and a new grout with a strength additive is applied. Tile Regrouting uses Sanitized Superfine White Grout which is cementitious grout designed for use with most types of ceramic tiles and natural stone applications. The grout also contains a biocide, which provides it with a resistance to a broad spectrum of moulds & bacteria. On average, grout manufacturers recommend the life of grout is only approximately 10 years.
Why Regrout? – Benefits of Regrouting
SAVE TIME – Regrouting requires the area to be out of action for a shorter period of time than renovating. We are all busy people and nobody likes to take time off work or spend days at home supervising tradesmen. Most full bathrooms can be completed in one day, and your shower will be out of use for only 24 hours instead of weeks.
HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT – Our bathrooms are often the dampest rooms in the house. They become a breeding ground for dangerous mould & mildew which not only looks unpleasant, but creates an ideal environment for germs and termites which can lead to serious respiratory problems – especially for the young & elderly. We all like to feel we are helping to save our environment and regrouting is a far better ‘green’ solution than renovation.
IMPROVE APPEARANCE FOR SELLING – It’s a fact that bathrooms & kitchens can help or hinder the sale of a property. A well presented bathroom or kitchen could be just the thing required to help with your sale. Keep your tenants happy with maintaining your rental property.
SAVE $$$$$ – The Cost of regrouting tiles of a shower or a bathroom is the factor that is definitely the biggest benefit of regrouting compared to retiling, your tiled areas will look as new as when they were first laid for a fraction of the cost of retiling or a full renovation. Retiling can involve many unexpected costs such as disposal of old tiles, plumbing, and new bathroom accessories.
