What Is Grout?
Grout is used as a filler for the joints between tiles once the installed tile has been set. Most grouts are a powdered mix that hardens when combined with water.
Signs Grout is Failing
The most common way to know grout is no longer doing its job is that your tiles are loose or if the grout is cracked. Deteriorating grout can lead to mold and mildew growth, so it’s important to replace grout as soon as possible.
What Is Caulk?
Caulk is a sealing agent used in showers, tubs, tiled backsplashes, sinks and toilets to seal crevices and prevent water from exiting and causing damage. Caulk is also used to fill in cracks between windows and doors to avoid heat from escaping your home.
Signs You Need Recaulking Services
Caulk lasts approximately five years. The most common signs you need new caulk include the following:
- Water leaks
- Cracks or peeling caulk
- Dry caulk
- Mold or mildew under the caulk
