Shower Tile Regrouting
Knowing when it’s time to re-grout your tiles and how to get it done efficiently
The process of replacing the grout in your tiles is the maintenance that your overall tiling job will need as a periodic procedure to keep your tiled surfaces in good repair and condition. Just like getting an occasional carpet dry-clean to ensure the carpets are kept in great condition and free from excess dirt and bacteria – re-grouting is often needed for tiled surfaces that see heavy traffic for the same reasons.
Getting a tiling re-grout done is far less expensive than re-tiling, especially if the current tiles are still in good condition and you’re still happy with the design – why replace something that you can easily fix and maintain?
Signs you need a tile re-grout
Over time the grout in your tiles naturally disintegrates or degrades in quality – this is simply an unavoidable fact of house maintenance overall.

Some signs that you need to consider tile re-grouting include:
Getting your grout replaced also comes with a tile clean to boot, so that the overall effect of having the job done is tiling that looks brand new again!

How to get the best re-grout result
The best way of achieving a smooth and professional looking tile re-grout is of course to hire experienced tradespeople who work for a bathroom specialist like Complete Shower Seal. Years have been spent by our tilers in apprenticeships to learn how to complete jobs like these with an efficiency and effectiveness that the DIY handyman simply cannot replicate.
