matching caulk to grout

Posted by mabeldingeldine (My Page) on

We are planning to use Laticrete Spectralock grout in Silver Shadow to grout or new tile shower. Unfortunately, I'm unable to find Laticrete caulk locally. I have found some Mapei Silver. Can anyone tell me if this will look close enough to work in a white shower? Or should we switch to Mapei grout?

Many thanks!

RE: matching caulk to grout

I ordered my Silver Shadow caulk from this website, that Laticrete has linked to the Laticrete site. There are a couple of online links on the Laticrete site but the page is hard to find for me so I saved the address to the company I used and here it is:

They are quick, and did a fabulous job of packing. I would definitely use them again.

Great! Thanks, Enduring! I will order today.

RE: matching caulk to grout

Did you find that the Laticrete caulk didn't quite match the silver shadow grout? I went to such great lengths to find it online, and then didn't feel like it was a really good match anyway... Anyone else feel the same?

RE: matching caulk to grout

Oh my, I hope it matches, I haven't got that far yet. I will be using it in my corners. It will be a few days before I pop one open. I will try to remember to post the results.

RE: matching caulk to grout

I used Laticrete caulk matched to Laticrete Permacolor grout and the color matches perfectly. I ended up buying one tube from a granite yard rather than a tile store (my tile store was out and sent me there).
