Undertaking a spot of tiling, and need some advice on the grouting process? You’re in good hands! This guide will show you how to grout a wall or floor.
1) Getting your tiles ready
Before you start grouting, you need to make sure your tiles are fixed in place, and that you’ve waited the recommended amount of time for the adhesive to set.
2) Mix the grout
When you are ready to start grouting, empty the bag of powder into the water and mix thoroughly.
3) Apply the grout
Using a Grout Float, apply the grout into the tile joints; working in diagonal sweeping movements.
4) Buff off any excess grout
Wait for the grout to partially set and wash the tile surface off with a tiling sponge and clean water.
What grout is best?
We recommend using Mapei Ultracolour Plus Grout. Available in a multitude of colours, it’s a good, flexible tile grout. Simply add the powder to the water, and mix to a good, creamy consistency.
