I look through the archives and did not see this question.

I've lived in my house 3 years and don't know when they put the tile follor in the kitchen. But the grout was never flush with the tiles and now is starting to crack and since I cleaned it really good the other say I can see the spacers.

Can I just re-grout the entire floor? Also there is one cracked tile can I somehow pull that up and replace it?

Rin,

You can try it. I'm not sure the new grout with stick. Try a small area first. Dampen the joints (not wet, just damp) and use sanded modified (polymer) grout. Home Depot sells Polyblend, for example.

Let the grout set until firm before washing.

Here's a thing on removing a tile.
