Holey Grout

We have a tiled shower in our 1980′s home that has little holes forming in the grout between the tiles. How can we cover them up? Can we re-grout these tiny openings or is there a product that would fill in these small holes? Tried putting clear caulk over it and the caulk is starting to peel away.

Tracy,

Question: I will be moving into a condo in July. The master bath has a separate tub and shower. The realtor has recommended re-grouting the shower. The shower is probably 6×6 square feet. Is this something I can do myself? I’m not one of those “mechanical” females, but I would like to save some money. Thanks and blessings.

Gwen,

Thank you for listening – we appreciate you.

We are generally NOT the people to recommend doing such things as ceramic tile yourself.
