Grout Care of Tulsa owner Kent Kantor makes old tile grout and caulking look like new again.
Kent Kantor, owner of Grout Care of Tulsa, says, “I can show you an easy way to save money on a couple of simple home improvements to tub and shower surrounds in bathrooms and grouted tiles in kitchens.” Kent’s company specializes in removing old grout and caulking from kitchen and bathroom tile, replacing it, and making it look like it did the day it was installed; this is Grout Care’s most common home repair service.
“Since tile doesn’t really wear out unless it’s been damaged, there’s not much we can do to it,” says Kent. “It’s the grout and caulking that causes homeowners the biggest problems, as it can be stained or affected by both mold and mildew.” Grout Care restores grout and caulking to like-new condition. This process can save homeowners a lot of money, because they won’t have to tear out and replace tile. According to Kent, you can do this type refurbish for about one-fifth the cost of a total replacement.
Grout Care of Tulsa has been satisfying customers since 1997. If you take just 15 minutes to have Kent come to your home and give you a free estimate in writing, you’ve got nothing to lose. After the estimate, you decide if you want to have Grout Care complete the project or not. Most grout repair projects are completed in just one day.
Kent says it’s been proven that postponing this type of repair could end up costing owners up to five times more. “It just makes good dollars and sense to get on this type of problem before it gets out of hand,” he says. Kent and his company are proud that they have been saving customers a lot of money over the years by correcting conditions before they become really big problem spots. He says most of his customers are pleasantly surprised at the cost estimates to make their kitchen, tub or shower grout look like new again.
When the old grout is removed and replaced in standard tub surrounds and shower stalls, the whole area looks clean and beautiful again. Trying to do this job ourselves is one that most of us hate so much, we never get around to doing it. Consequently, we end up being ashamed of our ugly bathroom tubs, showers, and kitchen areas. It’s a great solution to have someone who has the tools, materials, and know-how to come in and do the job properly. Grout Care of Tulsa does this process every day. And when the job is complete, the worksite is left clean and tidy.
In addition to removing and replacing caulk or grout, Grout Care also offers a two-step process of cleaning and sealing existing grout. Once the grout has been thoroughly cleaned, Kent applies a sealer over it, making future cleaning and maintenance much easier.
Grout Care can also stain most of the grouts found in kitchens. By staining the grout, it is permanently sealed, thereby eliminating the grout’s porous texture and paving the way for easier care and maintenance. Kent considers this process to be a step in preventive maintenance that can save clients many dollars in the future.
It only takes about 15 minutes of your time when you invite Grout Care of Tulsa to come to your home and prepare a free estimate of what it will cost to restore the grout or caulk in your bathroom or kitchen to like-new condition.
