Looks great, Ron. What about beveled edge tiles. When you smooth out the new grout what technique do you use to keep the grout in between the tiles and out of the beveled edges?
Thanks Ron, for the excellent tips on grouting. I never saw your show before and I turned the TV on at the right time because I was thinking about regrouting my bathroom tiles. Then I went on your website. Great website. I will keep your website in my favorites for my next project.
Another splendid how-to video! This is something that I have been contemplating to do for some time. Now I know just how to tackle. Thanks Ron. Phil S.
you said let dry 3 days then apply the sealer; we have only 1 bathroom - are we shower-less for 3 days? Great video btw, love your tips/site!!
I wish it were so easy. I have both the tools shown in the video but the tiles in my shower were set so closely together, these tools can't remove grout without chipping off the tile. Don't bother with grout renewing kits that have you applying a thin film of cover-up paint. The result looks good at first but doesn't last. I will eventually replace the tile with a fiberglass surround. As far as tackling a whole floor with one of these hand tools, don't even think about it.
Great hints on how to obtain a perfect job with the tile grouting.
very informative but my kitchen tile floor is not but 3-4 years old, looks dingy in some areas of floor, have tried everything to clean even using a toothbrush, have found nothing that works, guess it due to being so porous, Was sealed when installed, at a loss of what to do.
There are many blogs that state you must remove a substantial amount of grout (2/3's deep), not just a scraping of the surface grout, before refilling with a new mix of grout?
I am a sixty eight year old woman who followed your clear and informative instructions and am really pleased with the results. Thanks!
