Thorough Caulking, Cleaning, and Sealing Renews Kitchen and Bathrooms in this Boston Home
September 22, 2015Thoroughly remodeled kitchen and bathrooms can be an excellent motivator when selling real estate. For Bridget Mason, at the time a young professional who had just accepted a position in downtown Boston, the clean, new bathrooms and kitchen were enough to sign the paperwork and become a new homeowner! Unfortunately for Bridget, as the years went on, she started having occasional issues with her shower. Moisture and leaks seemed to spring up often, requiring drying, maintenance, and repair. She did not know it at the time, but the remodeled bathrooms that first attracted her to the home had been poorly renovated. An improper seal or defective grout had turned the remodeled master bathroom in her dream home into a money pit.
Take a look below to see the beautiful results of this full caulking and recoloring job.
In addition to the leaks in the master bathroom, the shower and floor in her guest bedroom needed work as well: the grout was starting to fade and discolor from years of guest visits and friend sleepovers, and did not look nearly as good as it used to. In the kitchen, Bridget's once beautiful granite counter was also showing signs of aging -- the color was not as vibrant anymore. Bridget researched home remedies, and invested in multiple cleaning products. Unfortunately, nothing seemed to even put a dent in the dirt and discoloration. After a few futile cleaning attempts, Bridget realized that she needed professional help. Searching for Boston caulking services, she realized she needed a business that could take care of all the issues she was having, not just some. The choice was easy for her: Bridget contacted Sir Grout of Greater Boston after reading numerous positive reviews, and asked Sir Grout to help her fix her home.
As years go by, moisture, soap scum and mildew discolor and dry out shower grout, making it look weathered and dirty. With Sir Grout of Greater Boston, Bridget was in good hands!
On the day of the job, Sir Grout's trained, professional hard surface restoration team assessed the scope of work, and formulated a detailed plan of action. Upon close inspection of the leaking master bathroom shower, the team determined that there was an issue with the original install. The team then regrouted the shower to make sure and stop the leaks once and for all. For the guest bathroom shower, the team used ColorSeal to recolor the existing grout. ColorSeal seals the original grout, while giving the appearance of new grout. For the granite counter in the kitchen, the team went with a thorough cleaning and resealing process to remove the years of wear from the granite, and make it look new again.
Bridget Mason's home was revitalized with the help of Sir Grout of Greater Boston. She was thrilled to see the finished product, and excited to be able to trust her re-caulked bathroom shower not to leak! She was even more excited about the freshly-cleaned and sealed granite counters in the kitchen. A thorough cleaning and sealing can do wonders for surfaces that have been weathered and discolored. Sir Grout of Greater Boston's job for Bridget Mason was a complete success!
With newly re-grouted, re-caulked, resealed and recolored showers, Bridget can once again enjoy her master bathroom shower, and invite people to stay in her guest bedroom without being embarrassed of the old, fading grout lines.
