Repair and Restoration: Make Do and Mend

Hello, my name is Alfred and this is my new blog. I am kind of new to all this internet business. My grandson taught me how to turn on a computer and to use the keyboard and how to navigate the internet. He recently suggested I start a blog but I refused because I didn't have a subject. My dad had always said to me that you should never start writing anything unless you have a subject. My grandson suggested that I write about my passion for repairing and restoring things. I believe we should make do and mend so I have taught myself how to fix many different types of things. I hope you enjoy my blog.

Why Install New Shower Tiles When You Can Re-Grout the Old Ones?

Are your shower tiles looking old and unsightly? Are you thinking about replacing them with new ones? Maybe all they need is new grout. Grout plays a significant role in determining the overall appearance of your bathroom. If it is worn or chipped, it may make your tiles look unappealing as well. Thus, before you break the bank on new tiles, read the following benefits of re-grouting your old ones.

Revamp old shower tiles

Over time, old grout suffers discolouration and becomes hard to clean. As a result, the grime and dirt make your tiles look dirty as well. Luckily, discoloured and damaged grout is repairable. You don't need to get new tiles. You can revamp your old ones by re-grouting the shower. 

New grout has a clean, visually appealing look that instantly improves the appearance of your tiles. Once you clean your tiles to get rid of soap scum and dirt, your shower will be as good as new. What's more, the fresh look of the shower adds kerb appeal to the entire bathroom space. 

Change overall appearance

Have you ever wondered whether you could change the appearance of your shower grout? Perhaps get a colour that unifies the tiles? Or one that highlights or accents a particular shade on your shower tiles? If so, a re-grouting project offers the perfect opportunity for changing the appearance of your shower.

Shower grout comes in a variety of colours, ranging from white to grey to blue to gold. You can practically use any shade that complements your bathroom's colour scheme. Thus, if you don't like the current grout shade, a re-grouting project allows you to get rid of the old, chipped and unappealing grout and replace it with a new product in your preferred colour. 

End mould and bacteria growth

Shower mould is something most people have to deal with, especially in older homes. Over time, the sealant applied on tiles and grout wears off, leaving the grout exposed to moisture. Once water seeps into the grout and under the tiles, it creates a suitable breeding ground for mould, mildew, fungi and bacteria. These leave unsightly stains in the shower and make your bathroom an unsanitary space.

Re-grouting helps prevent mould growth in the shower. Your contractor will remove the old grout and treat mould and fungi. After installing new grout, they seal it to prevent moisture from seeping into the grout. Regular resealing of your shower tiles and grout can eliminate mould problems in your bathroom.

You don't have to spend money on a costly shower remodel. Re-grouting your shower tiles can instantly improve the appearance of your bathroom and restore its functionality. Contact a shower re-grouting and sealing services for more information.
