With any home purchase, there are plenty of positives and hopefully few
negatives — and ours was no exception. Our home has great potential and
good bones, but with those positives we also inherited many flaws, like
banged-up walls, scratched laminate flooring and a dilapidated porch.
Another unlucky feature was cracking grout in the corners of our shower
where tile meets tile. Not only was this an eyesore, but if left
unfixed, it could have caused water damage to the home's structure.
Due to a house shifting and moving throughout its life span, cracking in
inflexible materials is a given. In this case, grout had been used in
the corners of our shower where each side of the shower meet, resulting
in large cracks in the water barrier.
