FAQs

What is the purpose of grout?

After completing the tile installation process, you may observe gaps between the tiles. Grout is necessary to fill these spaces, serving as a joint filler that enhances the tiles' longevity. Grouting the tiles not only eliminates gaps but also prevents debris or water from infiltrating between or beneath them. In essence, grout is essential to provide strength and stability to your tiles.

What is epoxy grout for tiles?

Epoxy grout, the preferred choice for grouting tiles in areas subject to constant water exposure, offers exceptional benefits. Known for its chemical resistance and non-porous properties, epoxy grout prevents the growth of bacteria and mildew. This makes it particularly suitable for areas prone to water, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Additionally, the use of epoxy grout contributes to the long-term performance and durability of your tiles.

What does grouting involve in a bathroom?

Given the frequent exposure to water in bathroom areas, particularly from steam and condensation, traditional cement-based grouts may pose challenges. The porous quality of cement grouts can result in their deterioration over time. Moreover, the moisture-prone environment in bathrooms can foster the growth of fungi and mold with cement-based grouts. We recommend opting for epoxy grouts, known for their water-resistant properties, making them the ideal choice for bathroom applications.

Is it appropriate to apply epoxy on tiles?

Using epoxy on tiles is advisable, especially when the tiled area is exposed to constant water flow. Continuous water exposure can potentially cause the deterioration of tiles, leading to cracks and structural issues. Proper application of epoxy on tiles helps extend their lifespan by providing protection. Epoxy grout is particularly recommended for tiles that may be subjected to chemical and water-related attacks.

What is the process of grouting tiles?

The tile grouting process involves the following crucial steps:

1. Selecting the appropriate grout for the specific application area is essential, as using the wrong grout can lead to undesirable outcomes.

2. Mixing the grout with the manufacturer's recommended amount of water is crucial. Adding excessive water can compromise the consistency and strength of the grout.

3. Applying the grout at a 45-degree angle with the assistance of a grout float.

4. Removing excess grout by wiping it away with a damp sponge.

Is it possible to apply epoxy over tile and grout?

Certainly, you can apply epoxy over your existing tiles and cement grout by executing the task accurately with the right tools. Utilizing epoxy grout in this manner will not only effortlessly enhance the appearance of your older tiles but also provide added strength. The outcome will be a more robust and resilient surface.

Does grout possess waterproof qualities?

If you select an unsuitable grout for your specific area or conduct improper grouting, you may observe cracks in the grout, enabling water infiltration. For areas prone to water exposure, it is advisable to use epoxy-based grouts. Epoxy grouts are inherently waterproof and non-porous, exhibiting high bonding strength. They are resistant to cracking, staining, or shrinking when exposed to water.

Is it acceptable to install tiles over existing tiles?

Indeed, you can establish a new tile surface on top of the current one. The key consideration is ensuring that the surface of the old tiles is devoid of cracks or irregularities. Levelling the existing subsurface with appropriate grouting is essential. Additionally, it's important to check for the absence of mold or mildew. Opt for a high-quality tile adhesive to ensure a reliable bond and a smooth surface for the application of the new layer of tiles.

Is it necessary to remove old tiles before tiling?

Certainly, opting for tile-on-tile applications can save you from the hassle of lifting the existing tiles. However, it is recommended only if the current surfaces are free of hollowness and are structurally sound. In some cases, old tiles may be prone to mold, mildew, and uneven leveling. Tiling over such tiles can pose challenges for the new layer. It is essential to inspect your old tiles for these issues. If any problems are identified, preparing the old surface may require significant effort. In such instances, the most effective course of action is to remove the existing tile and thin-set.

What are the consequences of not sealing grout?

It is strongly recommended to consistently seal your grout, particularly in areas prone to moisture. Failure to do so can result in the grout absorbing bacteria, water, and stains. The infiltration of grime and water may lead to the development of cracks in your tiles. Over time, these cracks can contribute to the overall deterioration of your tiles. Sealing your grout not only prevents such issues but also prolongs the lifespan of the tiles, minimizing damage to the tiled area.

Which type of grouts doesn’t need sealer?

Epoxy grout is the only type that doesn't need sealing due to its inherent sealers. Epoxy grouts are robust and naturally non-porous, eliminating the need for additional sealers in their application.

Is it possible to apply epoxy over kitchen tiles?

Opting for epoxy grouts in your kitchen proves to be a prudent decision, and here's why. Epoxy grouts are highly durable, resistant to stains and chemicals, and possess the appropriate rigidity for kitchen applications. This choice enhances the strength of your kitchen countertop significantly. Epoxy grouts excel, particularly in areas prone to grease and water-related damage requiring grouting. When accidental spills occur on your kitchen floor, cleaning becomes more manageable with epoxy grout. Consequently, you no longer need to fret about the maintenance of your kitchen.

Do grout sealers work?

Opting to seal grout is a prudent measure to enhance the bonding strength of your tiles. However, not all grout sealers are suitable for every situation. It is recommended to select grout sealers based on your specific tiling needs and the location. When grout sealing is performed with due diligence, it serves as a protective measure against grout cracking and water damage.

Is it necessary to seal unsanded grout?

Unsanded grouts, designed for use in narrow grout lines and on delicate tile surfaces, do not include sand. While sealing may not be mandatory in all instances of using unsanded grout, we still recommend applying a penetrating sealer to enhance protection and ensure optimal performance.
