Failed Grout - A common sight.


Fully tiled showers can really add an upmarket feel to any home, however traditional cement based grout breaks down over time and can lead to other issues.

This Tauranga home was found to have a loose tile just outside the shower enclosure. Missing grout in the shower base proved to be the root cause allowing excessive quantities of water to flow under the tiles which degraded the adhesive, allowing the tile to become detached.

GroutPro sees this most days. The solution: remove the grout in the base and replace it with epoxy grout (a waterproof alternative to standard grout). A general tidy up of the rest of the shower, and re-affixing of the loose tile, has given this bathroom a new lease of life that should last much longer than the original installation.
