South florida house built in 2005, the grout is cracking. I want to repair it to make it look nice again in certain sections. I found a bag of grout in the attic. Can I use that grout and spot repair the grout in different sections? or is there a product I can buy to fix the cracked grout? Thank you in advance for any tips of information.
You can use it on your yard to help it, or toss in the trash. That is all it is good dor now.
Grout and mortar is only good for a year after the manufacturing process. After that dispose of it, if it was not kept in the right conditions.
As for repairing, you need to figure out why the grout joints are cracking. Usually floor structure, not laying enough mortar down when they placed the tiles. or mixed the grout wrong.
You just need to use a multi-tool to remove all grout, vacuum all joints well, then use brand new grout from the store, properly mixed and redo.
