Grouting is as essential to tiling as cement is to brickwork. Grout in fact consists of usually sand or cement type materials and its primary function is to ensure the tiles remain laid properly for years to come. The secondary function of grout is to enhance the design of the tiled areas as grout is manufactured in many different colours and types. It is important to keep in mind that when selecting which grout to use, the cheapest is generally not the best option.
Cheaper grouts tend to crack or soften over time (sometimes within only a few weeks or months of application) and a lot of tilers tend to use cheaper grout to bring down the cost of a project, but this can result in unsatisfactory work as the tiles then need to be fixed again in the near future.
At Melbourne Superior Tiling, we always select the right grout for the job and ensure that this process is carried out to an immaculate level, leaving a lasting finish on the quality of our work.
