View Full Version : Help with cracked/missing grout in shower

03-03-2007, 10:13 AM
I just purchased a home in the south. The home is 8 years old. The home inspection missed some cracked/missing grout in the upstairs shower (tile floor). The area is about 2 inch long near the corner of the shower. There is some discoloration in the surrounding grout. Do I need to pull up the tile and check the shower pan or can I just re-grout the area? Thanks

Welcome, dopek9.

Hmmmm....a picher would be really helpful here. If this is nothing more than grout cracking out in a corner over a properly constructed pan, replacing the grout in the corners with a sealant would work fine. But if this is grout cracking is located out from a corner....that doesn't sound so innocent. A picher might clue us in to other problems that may be causing this.
