Caulking is not only a good way to protect corners from water and moisture, it also is the perfect finishing touch for any tile or stone installation job. The beauty of caulk vs. simply using extra grout in those corners is, it doesn’t crack. This also makes it a great option for small repair jobs. Typically that cracked grout will just crack again if you just re-grout it. Instead using a flexible caulk is a sound option that can be more permanent solution to that cracked grout.
There is a downside to this however. Caulk won’t absorb water and dirt at the same rate as regular grout does, therefore, it would be in your best interest to Color Seal after you have done your repair. Not only will your cracked grout issues be gone, but your grout will be restored to that new grout look, and best of all… it will stay that way!
