Since 2001 American Grout Specialists have been the San Francisco Bay Area's premier tile and grout refinishers. Our experts will restore your grout to it's original shine and luster.
My Edwardian-era flat needed help: the old bathtub had been resurfaced 15 years ago. Tub renovations like this normally last 10 years, so predictably, the tub was cracked and chipped ﾗ grotty. The kitchen tile is also original or thereabouts. The grout, however had become, shall we say, tattle tale gray. Zack the Tub Guy to the rescue!! The chips and cracks are gone: the tub now gleams invitingly. As for the kitchen, Zack figured the exact shade of off-white grout, to replace the old. The kitchen has been transformed from just OK. to vintage restoration. Not only that, when Zack's crew mistakenly painted the bath tub drain, Zack took full responsibility, made it right immediately, and gave me a better price on the kitchen project. I will never go anywhere else.

My bathroom needed some sprucing up. I've re-done the grout myself in my bathroom before and it is very labor intensive and it took me an entire Friday, Saturday and Sunday (first time grouter). This time around I knew I could save some bucks and do it myself but just didn't feel like dedicating an entire weekend to it. So I called on Friday to get a quote and Saturday morning the grouter arrived and went to work. He showed up at 10:30 and by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday the work was complete! Worth every penny. Some things are just better left to the professionals. My bathroom looks brand new again! And I still have the entire weekend to do as I please Very happy customer.

I found the company online in a Google search and found Zach and his team to be direct, timely and did excellent work. I had a complex situation with a very dirty, tile Terra cotta floor, which had not been properly cleaned in 60 years. The floor covers the ground floor area of an architecturally significant mid century house, and over the years both the tile and grout had become grimy and impossible to clean.The team got to work with tooth brushes and on their hands and knees. They asked me if my housekeepers cleaned on their hands and knees which made me laughthose days are gone for good except when it comes to American Grout.So the floor was beautifully cleaned, the grout and tile was sealed so it should stay that way. Furthermore, the team was polite, friendly and hard working, even though one of the guys had a cast on a broken arm from a skateboard accident, he was digging away too. Zach is very direct, fun to talk to once you get him going and a pleasure to do business with. I recommend this group completely.

I called Zach for a small repair job behind our kitchen sink where the grout had deteriorated between the pieces of granite. I was really concerned about the final appearance of any repair because I wanted it to be nearly invisible and not leave a big bead of grout behind. The guy that came to our house was on-time, efficient and even wore paper covers over his shoes while he walked around our house which was a very welcome thought. I had to leave the house before he got going, so I was concerned about the final result until I got home and saw the great work he had done. He had matched the grout color perfectly and very cleanly. I was really happy with AGS' work, speed and cost.
