If you’re a Wellington homeowner who takes pride in their place, you’ll most likely have a good eye for detail. One detail you might have noticed lately is the grout cracking in your bathroom; it can ruin the clean, polished porcelain paradise you’ve established for yourself!
These cracks seem to start appearing in or around joints where the wall meets your bath, shower or floor. They develop due to age, but can sometimes be warning signs of worse problems such as poor installation or too much moisture buildup due to leaks or poor ventilation.
If you’re spotting grout around the joints and meeting points in your bathroom, then this is probably due to the movement occurring between the two surfaces. Houses are in a constant state of motion due to our stomping feet, wind, humidity, temperature and the odd earthquake. As the grout in your bathroom doesn’t allow for much movement, it’s going to eventually crack and crumble.
If you weren’t able to track down a professional Wellington plumber for your bathroom installation, then chances are you could have wound up with poor quality grout. If grout is improperly prepared (mixed), then you’ll be stuck with sneaky pockets of air amid the grout that weakens its integrity. Eventually the bubble turn into cracks...but not to worry, we can help!
