You can gain valuable information including possible options in regards to proper repair. A knowledgeable tile professional should be able to share his experience and offer a means for the repair.
It is important to get an expert opinion on your tile/grout repair needs. Most professionals will either offer a free estimate or offer to use the consultation/inspection fee towards any work performed. Make sure to ask the right questions such as: are you licensed? do you specialize in repairs? what type of warranty do you offer?
A tile pro should be able and discuss your repair options and explain how he will perform the repair. He should be able to provide an accurate bid before the job has started. It’s also a good idea to get 3 bids and take some time to determine which fits your criteria.

Hi Joanne, I would use Super Grout Additive at all corners where the grout or caulk has begun to fail. Remove any mildew/mold with bleach/water solution and let dry, then scrap any loose loose before applying the super grout.

I have 2 separate problem in different showers. In the first shower I found a slight hairline crack against my wall and floor. I also have small mold spots throughout the floor. Do I remove all of the grout that is molded and just scratch the surface of what is not molded then apply to this product?
The 2nd shower has a hairline crack about 4 inches from the corner towards the drain which is a pebble tile floor. My question is do I need to remove the grout or scratch out the surface to fix the pebble grout throughout the whole floor? Hope this made sense.

Hi Jason, Do you provide service in the Bay Area? I’d like to replace our shower. In addition, can I put new tiles on a shower pan (I think it’s made of fiberglass)? Thank you.
