Description

Bathrooms are wet places, making it imperative to take extra precautions to keep moisture out of the floors and walls. The joints between the tiles and fixtures are particularly vulnerable spots. Grouting and sealing are the ways to protect them. The noted spots in the bathrooms need various combinations of grout and sealant to bring them up to standard. We recommend checking and refreshing this annually.

We also noted that the sink in the hall bathroom does not have an overflow drain. These drains can divert a small amount of water in an overflow situation, but their main purpose is to allow air into the drain when the sink is filled with water to facilitate drainage when the water is released. Sinks without overflow drains will drain relatively slower. Nothing to be done here; just something to note.

If Not Addressed

The absence of grout makes the walls and floor vulnerable to moisture damage. And the absence of sealant makes the grout, which a permeable cement-based substance, vulnerable to unsightly mold and mildew.

Estimated Costs

Regrouting and sealing the bathrooms could cost an estimated $20 as a DIY project or $150-$250 if done professionally. These costs will fluctuate based on the actual conditions the handyman encounters. Request quotes from at least 3 professionals.
