Why tile grout goes crumbly or powdery?

Grout, the substance between tiles, should be easy to maintain and water-resistant.

If tile grout begins to break down (i.e. crumbly and/or powdery) then it is likely not doing it’s intended job.  To prevent water from penetrating tile joints and potentially causing damage to internal building walls and floors, it’s paramount the cracks be repaired as soon as possible.

Typically crumbly or powdery grout is caused by poor mixing and/or application by the tiler.  When tiling grout and water are mixed, a chemical reaction occurs which turns the mixture from a pasty consistency when wet to a hard joint when dry.  If the tiler hasn’t prepared the tiles appropriately, mixed the grout incorrectly, uses inferior or expired grout mix, then the grout will fail.

An effective long term solution to fix broken or inadequate tile grout is usually to scrape out the old grout and replace it.  Regrouting can transform tiles making them look as good as new, saving you hundreds of dollars.

The photo above shows how regrouting has transformed this very old shower. It is now waterproofed and we also added a new tile, matched as close as possible, where the original soap holder had fallen off.

Fixing broken seals around baths and showers.

Did you know that most houses encounter seasonal movement? 

The walls of your house move against each other, often causing the seal between the bath, shower base and vanities to break.  It is very important any cracks be filled in quickly with a flexible sealant to ensure moisture doesn’t leak through, causing costly damage.

If you see sealant lifting away or grout cracking, contact us immediately to prevent potentially catastrophic damage.  We will remove the old sealant and/or grout, and apply a new application of sealant or grout that is suitable to the location and adjoining materials providing a long-lasting seal (and giving you peace of mind).
