TILE/GROUT REPAIRS

GREAT WHITE has the cure for ugly, cracked and stained floor grout.

Cracked grout in a floor is more than unsightly.  If not treated, it can cause damage to the floor's underlayment and possibly create the need for costly replacement of the entire floor.

GREAT WHITE can remove and replace the damaged grout.  We can also replace cracked tiles if you have replacement tiles available. GREAT WHITE will match the color as closely as possible.

GREAT WHITE recommends cleaning and sealing after the repairs are made.  In some cases, in order to ensure grout color consistency, we may recommend recoloring your grout after the repair.

                                           REMOVE & REPLACE CAULK

Improperly installed products, poor ventilation and improper cleaning and maintenance are the primary causes of unsightly mold in bathroom areas.

Routinely replacing the caulking can:

  • Prevent health issues caused by mold.
  • Prevent expensive repairs in the future by doing this smaller repair now.
  • Drastically improve the look of an existing tub, shower, sink or backsplash.

The caulk used in your bathroom and/or kitchen protects the wall behind it and the sub-floor below it from water damage. It is a good practice to periodically  replace old caulk and recaulk joints between the tiles and your tub, shower, sink or any place two planes of tile or two different construction products come together.  Recaulking should be added to your annual  bathroom maintenance checklist.

Another good reason to recaulk is to remove the black mold that sometimes grows in and behind the caulking.  Properly installed caulk can be damaged by improperly scrubbing it or incorrectly using a squeegee.  Damaged caulk allows moisture to have an open path to substructures and promotes the growth of mold.
