Grout Recoloring Gives New Life to Old Potomac, MD Home
September 08, 2015Sometimes, home improvement inspiration strikes in the most unexpected of places. While vacationing in Costa Rica, Dr. Levine, a successful pediatrician in the DC Metro Area, saw something that caught his eye: a construction worker fixing damaged flooring in his resort was painting grout lines with some sort of latex. He immediately understood that grout recoloring was exactly what the old, faded grout lines of his Potomac home needed. It looked great, but Dr. Levine did not know if this service was even available back home! Upon returning to Potomac, he searched for Potomac grout recoloring services, and found Sir Grout of Washington, DC. In addition to offering exactly this type of service, excellent reviews and feedback from multiple satisfied customers made the doctor's decision easy: he called Sir Grout the very next day.
Washington DC and the surrounding DC Metro Area gets the worst of both worlds as far as damaging weather: brutal, cold winters, and scorching hot, humid, rain-soaked summers. That plus years of foot traffic, moisture, children's birthday parties, pets, and dirt had taken their toll on the grout lines of Dr Levine's 50-year home. Sweeping and vacuuming is simply not enough to mitigate the daily damage done to grout. As grout ages, moisture and dirt discolor and dry out the grout, making the once clean, neat grout lines look weathered, old, and unsightly. Dr Levine wanted the job done right, the first time -- he wanted grout lines that looked as new as they did when the house was first built. Sir Grout of Washington, DC was up to the challenge!
On the job day, Sir Grout's trained grout recoloring team arrived early to assess the scope of the job and formulate a plan of action. They examined the condition of the grout and determined that recoloring and sealing the weathered, old grout was the optimal option to achieve the results the customer was looking for. To complete the job, the team turned to ColorSeal. ColorSeal is a tinted sealer that serves to fill and eliminate the dirt-trapping pores found on grout lines, creating a clean, fresh, water-resistant layer that looks almost identical to new grout lines. Sir Grout's ColorSeal is one of the best sealants on the market. Designed by experts with years of experience in bringing old, weathered tile and grout back to life, our ColorSeal stands the test of time, every time.
At Sir Grout of Washington DC, we take great pride in restoring tile and grout back to its original beauty. We take extra care to make sure that Dr. Levine, and every other customer we serve, is satisfied with the final result.
"I didn't think it would ever look this good!" Exclaimed Dr. Levine upon returning from work and inspecting the job: "This looks better than when we first moved in!" He then proceeded to take pictures and send them to his wife, parents, and friends, challenging them to "recognize whose house it was." He was truly impressed with the transformation. Our work was a big success!
More often than not, customers like Dr. Levine can continue enjoying the fresh, clean grout recoloring for years to come. Grout does require some upkeep -- cleaning with grout-appropriate products and minimizing moisture can prolong the life of original or recolored/resealed grout.
