The term “weekend warrior” is often applied to well-meaning home repair do-it-yourselfers. Weekend warriors make their lists, and check them twice. They head out to their local hardware store, and buy the necessary supplies. They undertake projects that seemed simpler before they began. No amount of instructional video viewing can get them out of a poorly-executed project. What happens on Monday? Well, in our line of work, Monday is when we receive requests from homeowners, who were unable to execute their re-caulking or regrouting project over the weekend. Monday is when our grout and tile specialists field in-home consultation requests for projects gone awry. Re-caulking does seem simple “on paper.” If you want peace of mind and a shining result, call The Grout Medic for professional re-caulking services.
The Grout Medic will use the right caulk for the job, and apply the proper amount.
You wouldn’t attempt to clean your chimney or install a new roof on your home. Since tile and grout-related projects are smaller and seem “easy enough” many homeowners attempt at least one on their own at some point. Re-caulking is one of the projects that most homeowners have tried at one time or another. A professional re-caulking company will apply the correct caulk depending on the area. In showers, a 100% silicone mixture should be used, because it will create a better water barrier. A professional re-caulking technician will know the correct amount of caulk to apply. Homeowners often deposit much heavier amounts than necessary. Too much caulk is not good, because it is more susceptible to impact, which will loosen it.
The Grout Medic will never apply new caulk over old, and we’ll help protect your family from the threat of mold growth.
All you have to do is buy the caulk, and apply it on top of the old caulk, right? Not so much. As a specialized re-caulking company, The Grout Medic will first remove all your existing, old, bad caulk. We know that doing so will eliminate the failing caulk material, and allow proper adhesion of the new caulk. We also know that by removing the old caulk, we could be effectively ridding your tubs and showers of mold growth – not just on the old caulk, but also behind it. We will apply an anti-mold treatment before replacing the caulk in your wet areas.
With The Grout Medic’s professional re-caulking service, you can rest easy knowing that your caulk will be applied correctly to protect your family from mold growth and potential water damage in your shower. You will also be guaranteed a professional-looking AND long-lasting result. Caulk is something that no one ever notices until it begins to fail, or has been poorly applied. Professional results are best achieved by the trained and experienced grout and tile specialists at The Grout Medic.
