 In Blog

If you’ve discovered damaged grout in your house, you may be wondering whether it’s time to repair or replace it. This is a complex question, and there’s a lot to discuss when trying to figure out the answer. Luckily there are a lot of professionals that would be happy to help. Let’s look at some of their tips.

Why Should I Rush to Repair or Replace My Damaged Grout?

Your first question may not be, “should I repair or replace my grout?” but rather, “why should I do either?” Well, that’s a fair question, and one with some easy answers. Damaged or discolored grout can leave your bathroom looking dirty. Bad grout can be very aesthetically displeasing, and for many of us, that alone is reason enough to get on replacing or repairing it. If that’s not bad enough, untreated damaged grout can cause other issues with your house, including structural damage. As if the bad looks weren’t enough, now you have to worry about serious damage to your home.

To Repair or Replace, Which and Why?

Only a professional knows whether to repair or replace.

The answer to this question is very situational. It depends, to a large degree, on the extent of the damage. If your grout is only lightly damaged, then you may be able to simply repair it to achieve the desired results. This is your ideal outcome and will definitely be easier than the alternative. Unfortunately, if the damage is extensive, then you will likely have to replace all of the grout. This sounds like a lot, but it’s worth preventing all of the other issues that come with damaged grout. To determine which outcome suits your situation, you’re going to need to contact a professional.

When you need to have your grout examined, it’s important to go with a professional. Check our website for more information and to book an appointment today.
