Hello,
I have just had my bathroom done 2 days ago by a professional tiler. When he has finished the grouting it looks like he has washed too much grout out of the joints.

Will it be OK to go back over it with fresh grout.

The grout is a good quality flexible grout and the tiles are rectified porcelain.

Thanks for any help

Why not get the pro back to rectify?

Every time I ring he is always mad busy and it will be weeks before he will come back. I would rather do it myself.

To echo what a lot of people have been saying, get the pro back in.

To answer your original question, it is best to remove the old grout and apply new grout since it can be uneven in some areas. When I was grouting my walls this video helped me.

Let me know how it goes!
