Seal floor tile before installation?
I have polished Hampton Carrara basketweave floor tile from the tile shop. Plan to use spectralock epoxy grout silver shadow (or perhaps a darker grey). I know the grout need not be sealed. Have never used epoxy grout before.
I have read about "pre-sealing" before installing??? Is that just diluting your sealer? I don't want to alter the polished look of the tile.
If you seal after install will it matter for the epoxy grout?
Solvent or water based sealer? What if don't seal at all?
Are there shrinkage problems with epoxy grout?
Thanks for all your advice/help! JoAnne
