Grout keeps coming up


Hi guys. Grout keeps coming up and cracking in bathroom. I suspect the floor under the tile moves a bit due to building vibrations. Is there some kind of caulk/grout that can go in and replace the chipping? Thanks in advance.

I think you are describing a tile failure---sorry but I believe the floor needs to be redone.

There is no grout that will hold up to tiles moving--and a flexible caulk will look like the Dickens in no time.

So I'd have to take up the entire bathroom floor just to fix the 2 tiles that are always chipping?

You didn't mention that there were only two tiles and the rest of the installation was fine.

In that case--remove the two tiles--Find and fix the problem and install new tiles---then grout.
