Two Materials, One System
Grouting developed as the centuries-old art of stonemasonry began to decline. As it became the preferred method of providing structural integrity to adjoining tiles, architects realized contrasting tile and grout colors added a design element to the surface. Light colored grout remains a popular choice, even though the porous nature of sanded grout creates a well-known maintenance nuisance for facility managers around the world. Insufficient care can lead to permanent staining and decreased integrity of grout lines.
Today, architectural design thinks of tile and grout as a unitary system: one-part tile and one-part interstitial space, each supporting the other. Whether inside or out, horizontal or vertical, all your tile and grout systems will benefit from a SOLID Consolidated Care Plan. If your tile and grout has suffered from neglect or improper service, SOLID has the capability to restore them to a like-new appearance before you consider replacement. If you’re worried about your newly installed bathrooms, our expert managers will recommend a plan to preserve their aesthetics.
