Ceramic Tile Grout

Unsanded Grout

Unsanded grout is a mixture of cement and a color additive and is used to fill the areas between the tiles. This is usually used with wall tiles having less than 1/8"s wide joint. Generally sold in 5, 10 and 25 lbs. bags. A special liquid latex additive or water is mixed with the grout. The grout is than quickly spread across the tiles and than pressed into the tile joints. The excess grout is wiped off the tile and after so many days a tile sealer is usually applied.

Sanded Grout

For tile floors with wider joints a grout with sand is normally used. Other than the sand it is the same as the unsanded and you follow the same type of procedures when applying. Sanded grout is usually used with large ceramic floor tiles (not marble). It should be noted you may see a change in color of your grout over time.

Epoxy Grout

Epoxy grout are really for professional installers only who have experience using them. They are much more resistant to stains and chemicals.
