About Us

We were so impressed... We bought the business!

Northwest Grout Works – Family Owned and Operated

Founded in 1994 as a permanent solution to grout staining and discoloration, Grout Works is America’s premier tile grout restoration service. Headquartered in Atlanta with over 50 locations nationwide, we have thousands of very satisfied customers.

At the core of our professional service is our cleaning process and our proprietary color sealant. Designed to penetrate deeply into the surface of grout, our color sealant forms a tough shield that won’t peel, fade or flake over time. It’s resistant to dirt, liquids, oils, and heavy traffic. Choose from our 20 premixed colors or our custom-tinted colors to create beautiful, durable and brand-new looking tile surfaces that are uniquely yours, for a fraction of the cost of re-grouting, re-tiling, or renovating.

In addition to our cleaning and sealing processes, Grout Works professionals offer a complete range of tile and grout repair and replacement services. Whether you have loose or broken tiles, cracked or missing grout, or moldy and mildewed caulk, Grout Works professionals will make repair work quick and inexpensive.

James and Liz Nickerson are the licensed owners of Northwest Grout Works. James has several years of experience working with his father-in-law, the owner of Carolina Grout Works.  He was so impressed with the amazing results of the grout cleaning and sealing process that they started a Grout Works division when the couple moved to Portland, Oregon. Their territory includes, but is not limited to, Multnomah County, Clackamas County, and Washington County.

James quotes every estimate and works on every job. He is the face and muscle of Northwest Grout Works. Liz works from home on the administrative side and fills her day marketing, scheduling, and building this very website.
