This is a service I’ve found myself doing quite a lot recently.
Even though I am a qualified plumber, I see this type of service needing to be done everywhere and what a difference it makes, as you can see from the before and after photos.
The build-up of mould and lime scale on tile grout and silicone sealant can make your bathroom look old before its days and can give off a nasty odour, not to mention is the leading cause for leaks around shower trays and showers over baths.
Stirling Regrouting Services
The service I offer is to cut and scrape out all the old mouldy silicone – (as new silicone won’t stick to old stuff), masking tape off the area and add a new, shiny, white, tidy bead of anti-mould silicone around your shower, bath, bathroom/kitchen worktop (anywhere, any colour).
Grouting Renewal Service
With regards to the grouting renewal service, I use a multi-cutter equipped with grout blade to cut out all the affected grout. Wipe down and re-grout with new grout and then to ensure a lasting effect, I finish off with a spray sealer to stop any more water from penetrating your grout.
Yes, it is a simple task when you know how, but a number of bathrooms I see this in is amazing. For a little money, the grout and silicone renewal can completely change the appearance and odour of your bathroom.
Typical Regrouting/Resealing prices listed below:

Now you can likely find cheaper regrouting/resealing services, or even complete it yourself. I would warn that there’s a lot that can go wrong, having heard plenty of horror stories of previous work done from customers. These range from, deep cuts & cracked tiles, to not using the correct materials for the job, dropping machinery, & finally zero customer service if ever there is an issue.
I have done likely tens of thousands of regrouts & reseals over 11 years, use the finest materials & finish every regrout with a spray grout sealer, greatly improving the longevity of your grout.
If shower screen needs removed to silicone behind before rest of bath can be siliconed, shower screen refitted. This incurs a higher price. Assessment would be done in person.
All other scenarios & quotations that seem more complicated can be fully discussed prior to any work commencing.
Note: Cannot re-grout mosaic tiles or replace a dark grout with a lighter colour. Also, tiles that have any sort of raised pattern would need to be seen before accepting job.
I can also assist with:
- All tile and grout repairs
- Full re-grouts
- External tiling
All prices include materials
I would love to hear from letting agencies and landlords Edinburgh/Stirling that own a number of properties where we could come to an agreement on lower than normal prices for a larger amount of bathrooms.
