Have you noticed a bit of missing grout in your shower? Or, have you been ignoring a cracked tile near the sink? Is your stone counter top or floor scratched or dull? Most of us have been in a bathroom or kitchen that’s clean but not perfect, and it’s easy to ignore such minor blemishes. It may be time for grout repair, tile repair, or grout and tile cleaning.
Over time, these small issues become larger problems. Scratched or dull stone will allow dust and dirt to adhere to its surface. Tile cracks turn into broken pieces, and stretches of damaged grout grow longer. Not only are these unsightly, but if not repaired, the surface will continue to collect dirt and oily residues that can stain it and any caulking in between. Water behind the tiled area will begin to smell like mildew and can encourage the growth of toxic mold. Without tile repair, it is inevitable that the wall behind the tile will sustain further damage.
The Grout Expert can prevent small issues from developing into serious problems by replacing missing grout, removing and replacing cracked tiles, and smoothing out scratches in stone. Rather than ignoring a bathroom or kitchen that’s slowly becoming dingy, contact us to get a free estimate for tile, stone, and grout repairs.

Our Repair Process: Four Steps to Beautiful Grout, Tile, and Stone
We begin with a thorough inspection and typically need 20-30 minutes of your time to discuss the recommended work. We’re happy to address any questions or concerns, and will provide you with a written proposal that includes a description and cost of the grout cleaning and tile repair work to be completed.
Next, we prepare all of the necessary grout, caulk, and seal colors before starting your job. We cover carpets and flooring with plastic, and while not usually necessary, we can also protect nearby furniture.
In order to deliver a truly finished look, we recommend removing and replacing all of the caulking in the area to be restored. We then clean by hand all of the tiles, grout, and stone, using the appropriate propriety solution. Depending on your grout’s condition, we will either remove and replace it, or re-grout it-all by hand.
Sealing and Curing
Our last step is to seal the restored area and to let it cure for 24-48 hours. If we are not replacing your grout, but you want it to look new, we will apply a stain seal to restore its original color; alternatively, we can change the grout’s appearance by applying an entirely different color stain seal.
