Grout Failure in the Master Shower

1. Shower Pan -before - Wide grout joint at bottom of shower pan. 
Some grout & caulk was missing.  

This is a 3 year old home.
 The tile was improperly
 installed in the Master
 Bathroom.  The tiles were
 not flat on the wall and
 some didn't overlap in the  corners - leaving large  joints.  
The biggest problem was
 sloppy grout application.
 This let water into the 
joints and was loosening
 the grout- causing grout
There was missing grout in  some areas of the shower.
 If left un-repaired, this
 would have lead to a
 major renovation of the
 bathroom and surrounding

Proper Tile Installation is

Don't be fooled - When
 choosing a contractor,
 make sure they are a
  Licensed Contractor 
 Check with your State.

Helpful Hint...
Always notice the condition of your grout & caulk while you shower. Attend to any openings immediately!     Wipe down all of  the walls with a towel after use.  This removes water & soap scum before they dry.  

If you don't wipe, at least squeegee the walls down. This will greatly help in keeping it clean.
