Sweet Home Depot Bathroom Flooring for Impressive Look
Epoxy and Furan grouts are pricier, harder to find and more difficult to install. But they are more durable, and offer greater resistance to stains, water damage and damage by chemicals found in household cleaners. Adding sand to grout makes it more resistant to cracking or shrinking. Sanded grout should be used if the spaces between the tiles (known as joints) are greater than 1/8 inch. This is particularly important with light-colored grout and for floors in high-traffic and moisture-prone areas. This Old House recommends using the more breathable “penetrating” sealers instead of “membrane-forming” sealers, which are more likely to peel or cloud up with trapped moisture.
