I had ceramic installed in my kitchen about a year ago. In 75% of the kitchen the grout is not level with the rest do I have to remove all the grout and start over or can it be floated to fill in the low places


All the existing grout won't need to be completely removed but you'll need to use a grout removal tool to cut into the existing grout so that your new grout has a little more to grab on to.

    I wonder if a polymer grout would allow direct placement without the need to cut in any? – Micah Montoya Nov 16 '18 at 17:28

    It may... My worry is of bonding of the new grout to old sealed grout. You'll either end up with a dry joint where the new grout will eventually fall out or the new grout can be wiped "off" during normal cleaning... – BillWeckel Nov 16 '18 at 17:34
