Calling for tile expert, what type of white grout to use

Posted by zztt (My Page) on

I have three different white and blue tiles in my bathroom; want to use only one white grout for all the them. The grout joints are 1/16" for the floor, 1/8" for the shower wall and shower pan, and 1/4" for the rest of the wall area.

Hate to see the white grout joint getting dirty and yellow, and want to do it right in the beginning.

Should I use regular grout (Custom Polyblend) and seal it to prevent yellowing? Or using Spectralock epoxy grout but not sure it is good for 1/16".

Laticrete also has something called PermaColor, but it is a sanded product. Again, not sure it is OK for 1/16".

Please help!

RE: Calling for tile expert, what type of white grout to use

Well, I am no tile expert, but we just had our bathroom tiled and we had the installer use Spectralock PRO epoxy grout and our tile all had nominal 1/16 inch seams. (He said that for the beveled tile, the seam is closer to 1/8 inch at the widest point -- I think our floor tile was beveled and our wall tile had straight edges so was a true 1/16 inch.)

We haven't started using the bathroom yet, but the tile looks great. Sorry, I don't seem to have taken a picture of the finished tile yet!
