How to grout

Good grouting is the key to ensuring your tiled surfaces are sealed, water-resistant and look as though they’ve been done by a professional. This video takes you through the different types of grout, offers suggestions on how to grout different sized areas, explains how to achieve a neat and tidy finish, make your tiles sparkle and your grout last for longer.

Preparation & Planning

Grouting can only be done once the tiles are fixed in place and the adhesive has completely dried. How long this takes depends on the type of adhesive you’ve used, so follow the manufacturer’s advice. Also, make sure you pick the right shade of grout for your bathroom and tiles.

Aftercare

After finishing your tiling project, use a grout protector spray to stop penetration by water, dirt, oil, grease and lime scale. Using this product will help to prolong the life of your grout and keep the area easy to clean.

Getting the job done - hints & tips

For smaller areas a grout squeegee is the perfect tool for the job. However for larger areas a grout float will help you get the job done much more quickly.
