What decisions affect the cost of grouting?

Would you like to have the existing grout replaced, but would also like to significantly improve the overall appearance of your home? In this case, you can choose to combine the replacement of the existing grout with a facade cleaning. When cleaning a facade, dirt, moss, and grey stains are removed. The price for cleaning a facade is usually between $10 and $12 per square meter.
Option 2: Type of grouting
