They say you only get one chance to make a great first impression. This statement is very true when it comes to selling your home. Why? Because through the eyes of a potential buyer even the most minor detail can stand out like a sore thumb.
If you want to impress your prospects and earn the highest resale value on your home, you need to be sure every room is near-perfect. Even if you don’t plan on selling any time soon, there are lots of minor renovations you can do now to be prepared for the future.
One of those renovations is re-grouting the tiles.
Spruce Up Your Bathroom With Tile Re-grouting
This involves stripping out the old grout and replacing it with new grout. Now while the process itself is not hard, the job is time consuming and there’s always the risk of causing damage to the tiles if you make a mistake. But when done properly, the result will give your old tiles a burst of life and make your bathroom appear as if brand new.
Whether or not regrouting your bathroom will add value to your home depends on a few things. If the bathroom design and facilities are only a few years old then a simple regrout could make the difference between a good or a fantastic sale price.
But if the design is outdated and the facilities don’t run like they used to, those clean white lines won’t hide the fact a renovation is due. And potential buyers will take that into account when they come up with a price tag in their head. So be prepared to fork out extra if there are other parts of the bathroom that need work.
Overall, it’s certainly possible to add some extra value to your home by doing a simple regrouting job.
DIY or Professional?
When the time comes, you need to decide if you want to do the job yourself or hire a regrouting specialist to do it for you.
As mentioned before, tile regrouting is not a hard job but having to remove the old grout and replace it is a time-consuming job. You also want to be sure the new layer of grout is sealed tight or else you increase the risk of causing water damage to the property.
If you want peace of mind knowing your grout will perform well and last for longer, then choose a professional. An expert will know exactly which type of grout to use based on the kind of tiles you have. They will also offer to match the existing colour or let you choose a new colour to enhance the appearance.
Plus, grouting specialists have access to special tools, which can help speed up the process and save you a bit of money.
