If you are searching for “tile repair near me” for areas like your bathroom, shower, tub surround or kitchen then you may be heading in the wrong direction. Sometimes going to the trouble to repair grout and tile isn’t worth it. There may be a better option for you!
1. Your tile is outdated and no improvements will bring it back to date
Sometimes when your tile and grout is old, damaged, faded and discolored it is also so out of date that it will never bring the proper value to your property. Even if you could get the tile to look brand new it will still not be up to date. Regrouting outdated tile still doesn’t make the tile look right. In general, the trend for tile design is to be a larger format and have smaller grout lines. A 4×4 or 12×12 tile dimension may never be in style again.
2. You will not be able to find matching tile to replace the damaged ones you have
If some of your tile has delaminated or if it has been damaged from impact, staining or other causes you may have just enough to replace that area. Sadly, that is not usually the case. You could go out and try to find a matching tile or settle for something that is “close.” The ultimate look may not be what you want even after all of the trouble of having replacement tile put in.
3. Cleaning or re-grouting tile may require more time and expense than its worth
If your tile has turned black with mildew it may be tough to clean. Sometimes the cleaning will remove layers of the grout leaving a surface that is more susceptible to mildew. Or, if the grout is too damaged then you could try to have it regrouted. It is pricey to regrout tile and, if the new grout doesn’t bond properly then you may have to regrout in the near future. Searching for “tile grout repair near me” may not be necessary and here is why!
