Bathroom tile grout cracking?

My basement bathroom tile grout recently started cracking? It has been finished for over 4 years so why now? Any thoughts as to what could cause this after this much time? No other obvious signs of water damage in that area. Thanks

Bathroom tile grout cracking?

Could be lots of reasons. Have you changed the temperature of the room?

Maybe post some pictures of cracks and the area around it. Hard to say without more info.

Bathroom tile grout cracking?

Okay lets pull some teeth and see if we can figure something out. You supply the teeth!

Floor tile?
Wall tile?
Cracks are in the corners of the walls?
Cracks are in the middle of the floors?
Cracks are in the middle of the walls?
What size tile?
What is the substrate made of?
What brand grout was used?

You know? Stuff like that is what we need to know.
