Honey Onyx tile - dry treat?

Posted by snarkyinla (My Page) on

I just purchased Honey Onyx tile for my master shower (subway walls, herringbone floor, 4x4 squares to be used as needed) at a great sale price. The store said I should buy dry-treat sealant to use during the installation and it costs $70. I will talk to my tile guy next week, but is this something I should provide the tile guy (to make sure it gets installed right) or something he should already have/know to do?

RE: Honey Onyx tile - dry treat?

Personally, I'd recommend against using this tile for a shower, because it's so absorbant, and this is why the guy's selling you on the dry-treat.
