Above is an example of a shower re-grout and repair we performed in Colts Neck NJ last week. The corners were failing and cracking allowing water to get behind the tiles and cause some moisture on the ceiling below.
To correct this we first let the shower dry out for a few days and tested it was dry with a moisture meter before continuing. The next step was to remove the old grout and what was left of the moldy caulking. In less then a day the shower had new grout and mold resistant caulking installed and we also sealed the grout to prevent staining and make cleaning easier.

Here is another example of a shower in desperate need of professional service. The grout in the tub shower has mold and cracked grout allowing water to collect and seep behind the tiles. Luckily we were called before the water had a chance to travel so far as to create damage to the shower backing and travel into other areas of the home. Left alone this problem will only get worse resulting in major damage and costly repair. Image water dripping into your family room from your ceiling. This is an issue we come across many times each month.
We removed the damaged and mold grout and dried with our high speed drying fans. The next step was installing new grout and most importantly proper mold resistant caulking to the grout joints.
Pro Tip: If you have cracked grout and moldy grout in shower this is sign of a problem that has potential to get worse and cause damage. Besides it just looks awful.

That caulk in you shower that was white and pristine is now yellow and black with sections missing? Maybe you shower has never been caulked and just grouted which if you have this situation then you can count on broken grout. That is exactly what we found while doing caulk repair for our client in Rockaway, NJ 07866.
Old caulking posses more problems then just not looking very nice. The black you see could very well be mold and any gaps means that water has a chance to travel behind your walls and even do serious damage to ceiling on lower floors if left unchecked.
The above picture shows how a professional caulking repair can make a huge difference in your shower and protect against more costly repairs from water damage.

Here is an example of a recent project we completed last week in Morris Plains, NJ. The homeowner noticed a wet spot on a ceiling in the dining room which is directly below the master bath. Logically they called a plumber who quickly realized the issue was not a plumbing problem but a grout issue.
How does this happen? Well when the shower was tiled and grouted the installer used grout instead of caulking in the joints where the walls meet the tub and the walls come to a corner. Be it laziness, uneducated, or just unprofessional has now caused a lot of damage. You see, when tiles comes to a joint the two walls that meet at the tub base or floor, caulking is recommended as these are areas that will experience just the slightest bit of movement. Being that grout is hard and there is no room for this and eventually will fail resulting in water getting behind the walls and even traveling down to a floor below. Not to mention the possibility of mold growth that you can not see.
How we correct the problem: We start by removing all the grout out of the areas that should have been caulked in the first place. After inspecting the area behind the walls and confirming they are dry we proceed to install proper mold resistant caulking that color matches the grout on the walls. After a 24 hour curing period the shower is now ready for use and will stay water tight for years to come.
Should you do this yourself?
You can, as stopping water from damaging your home is the priority here. It may not look very nice or hold up long but better then nothing. For a professional job you should call a professional.
