THE GROUT GUY

Tiles, Grout and Water Damage – The Grout Guy Can Help in Perth, Melbourne, Geelong and now Sydney, too!

Water damage can be a serious issue, and a major cause of property loss as well as being potentially
hazardous to your health. Most water damage occurs slowly and out of plain sight which makes it
even more devastating; by the time you realise you have a problem expensive repairs may already
be required to fix it.


The extent of the repairs really depends on the location of the water ingress. In your bathroom,
kitchen, or laundry you could easily find yourself having to replace the whole area at great expense
and inconvenience. Your timber frames will start rotting internally, and wall plaster will bubble
metres from the actual leak site.


Deteriorating or missing grout in your shower or any tiled area allows water to seep underneath the
and loosen the tiles over time. Plus, the accumulated moisture creates a breeding ground for mould
and mildew to thrive, potentially aggravating respiratory illness and allergies for the entire
family/household.


Who would have thought that a little water leak could wreak so much havoc? We see it so often – so
we know that prevention is much better (and far less costly) than the cure! The good news is most
water leaks can be prevented (or caught early) with regular grout maintenance.


A tip for ensuring no sneaky leaks get past you is to check your tiled areas [mainly shower, bathroom
and/or laundry] regularly for evidence of cracked, stained or hollow tiles as any of those symptoms
can mean a leak. Tap on the tiles gently with a coin, listening for an ‘empty’ sound. If you find a
hollow area or damaged tiles, call our team out to have them repaired, we will replace with fresh
matching tiles where required, and replace the grout before any water damage can spread.


We are your local tile, grout and leaking shower experts, so don’t wait – give us a call today! We can
arrange a fast, free quote and solve your wet area woes in a flash and for a fraction of the cost of re-
tiling or having to repair entire areas of your home if damaged by leaks.

He worked till 8pm on the second night to finish up and he applied multiple trade skills to make it come together for me. If he’s up for promotion/pay rise anytime soon I couldn’t think of any one more deserving because of his work ethic and skill set. Just thought I’d let the company know how happy I am.

I just wanted to thank your team for an amazing tile renovation that was recently carried out in our home. People are blown away by the transformation and the high standard of the work. I am one very satisfied customer. I would be more than happy for you to use me for a reference. Many thanks.
