Our grout colors are very unique. Vibrant, Chromatic colors are possible when using this grout. Perfect for mosaics and tile jobs where a depth of character is needed. I use a commercially produced grout base and add pigments/dyes that are well suited for this application. The material you will receive already has the color added and all you have to add is water. Custom color matching is available. We can custom match most color cards in the paint department at the Home Depot and Lowes.

Steps for mixing and installing the Unsanded grout.
Add appropriate amount of water to a clean mixing container.
Add the grout
Stir for 3-4 minutes
Let sit/slake for 5 minutes
Stir again for 1 minute
Apply grout with float
Remove excess from surface
Wait 15-20 minutes for grout to stiffen up
!!Very Important!! Lightly clean off excess with clean, slightly damp sponge, sponge should not be dripping water. It’s very important not to wash away the top layer of grout, as the color will not be the same throughout the project. Using too much water will make the color appear washed out.
Wait 3-4 hours
Remove haze with soft towel, microfiber or cheesecloth
Do not walk on for 24 hours if applying to floor tiles
Wait 3 days and then seal with several coats of a spray-on grout sealer
Color variations can occur in any Portland cement product. Slight color differences are normal.
