Grouting over just sealed new grout

Is it possible to grout over newly sealed grout? I had someone working on my new shower and he grouted and sealed in one day and when I looked there were so many holes where there was no grout !!!! Will new grout stick to sealed grout ....I have slate tiles and he used Stone Enhancer and Sealer by Stone/Specific....The grout we used was Polyblend Non-Sanded Grout Thank you for your help

Hi Girl,

Grout will fill the holes even if sealed, but will not bond to grout whether sealed or not. You should try Sealer & Coating Remover, Aquamix makes one.

However.......why are you the one who has to worry about this? Makes the hack come back and fix it, and extend the guarantee too.

Next time hire a tile setter. Much better chance of getting it done right.
