What is Grout?
Grout is a paste like substance that is used as a filler between tiles after they are laid. The purpose of grout is to fill in and waterproof the spaces between tiles to create maximum flexibility and durability, as well as for its aesthetic appeal. There are many different interior and exterior forms of grout available for your requirements and functions. Additionally there are a wide variety of colours to choose from generally available in neutral colours, such as white, black, grey, off-white, and sand.
Grout initially comes in the form of a powdery substance which needs to be mixed with liquid to be applied correctly. When mixed with water the grout turns into a paste like substance similar to the texture of toothpaste or cake mix making it versatile enough to reach into gaps and cracks. It is then applied into the tile gaps using various methods such as a grout trowel. The grout must cure and set hard for at least 24-48 hours before any running water such as showers can be turned on.
