Re-grouting shower cubicle

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Ive got a shower cubicle in my new house and the tiles are nice but from half way down the grouting is black as is the silicone sealant round the bottom and the rubber round the glass door. How much do you think someone would charge to re-do this please? Many thanks

Depends how bad it is. Its a pretty labour intensive job.

All the old silicone and grout would need to be cut out, everything cleaned, new grout applied & cleaned and once thats dried the new silicone seal reapplied.

I'd work on a days labour plus materials.

Dont use cheap materials or you'll have the same problem next year.

I've no doubt someone will be along shortly to quote you 50 quid. My advice (which is always free and without obligation) is get someone who does bathrooms regulally to do the job properly.

For cleaning the grouting use a plastic scouring pad.:)

Try Astonish mould and mildew remover before employing anyone to regrout it. Spray on, leave and wash off with the shower head. It's miraculous!

 

ETA: If it's really bad, scrub it with a nail brush or plastic scourer.

You're welcome. Hope you get it sorted, there's nothing worse than mould, looks vile and isn't healthy for you.

When I did mine I used a grout file from Wickes to remove the grout and redid it myself, for the sealant I used a microbial one that is mould and stain resistant.

Was it hard to do? I assumme you have to be careful not to take too much grout out or the tiles will get damaged? Ive done sealent before so thats easy enough.

I scraped it till the mouldy stuff was off so no need to go too deep and an area about 2metres X 5metres took me a full day as you have to watch you don't slip with the file and scratch the tiles, once done I applied the grout using a grouting trowl.

The hardest part was removing the grout as it is time consuming, don't use cheap grout or silicon or it will reappear.
