Customer Questions & Answers

We loved the grout color when it went down but it lightened up too much. Is there a trick to keep the grout the darker color when first putting down?

Asked by: Harlin
It might be yur water. Also, did you clean the residue with water or with vinegar? White vinegar should be used.

How to get color back on new grout that suppose to be dark brown and turned white/ greyish?

Just put down 43 boxes of the Montana gunstock tile and used the tobacco brown grout! It looked fine when put down then when it dried it like a light grey/ white! Not the look I was hoping for! How do I get the color to come back!

Polyblend #105 Earth 25 lb. Sanded Grout is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 708.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse thing ever - Ruined my floor This grout is NOT dark brown. I put in a 400 sq ft floor using Gunstock (wood look alike) tiles. The display in the store said "Shown with Tobacco Brown Grout" It was beautiful so that is what I bought. When the grout was wet it looked great, but when it dried it was at least 3 shades lighter and looks like gray chalk lines. Does not even look brown at all. My $3000 floor looks horrible!!! I am now going to have to attempt to re-stain the grout a darker color. This will require painting all the grout lines with a tooth brush. It will probably take me months to complete. If you are looking for Brown grout - STAY AWAY FROM THIS COLOR!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixes well and dries true to color This sanded grout is easy to mix and the color is just what I expected. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that the bag is so big and heavy. I'm a mosaic artist, and I only need a half cup or so to grout a stepping-stone project. If I could buy a 10-pound bag, instead of 25 pounds, I'd be really happy. Note for those who work with mosaics: it's best to work in cool weather; overcast is ideal, but early morning works too. This grout dries at a slow enough pace that you can undo and redo small areas if needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!!!! I am totally disappointed with the end result! The grout color my husband and I picked was oyster gray and what we got when the grout dried was white!!!! It's crazy. I called custom building care center and was told that this was efflorescences which is impossible since this occurs over time not over a few hours, then I was told to tint it. I have researched and it seems its a very common problem.Why put the color on the bag if it's going to dry way lighter then expect! Very poor product!!!! >:(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install and good quality, but I had a problem with color matching I communicated with Custom Products via emails and they were very responsive and helpful. I liked the product, it mixed easily and went on well. I liked that they sell sample size packages for $5.00. I had a problem with color variances from batch to batch, even when the batches were from the same bag of grout. I tried to be consistent in the grout to water ratio and the mixing. I think this is due to some batches drying quicker than others thus being darker in color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Fusion Don't be fooled by Fusion hype! This grout costs 1/8 as much as Fusion! Each bag goes over twice as far, costing 1/4 of the price!. It is much easier to work with. far less chance of staining cabinets, trim, or the tile itself. With proper cleaning, DOES NOT need sealing! For added protection, Boost Grout enhancer can be used, or it can be sealed 5-7 days later. Super easy job, can seal 100s of feet per hour. Much less work than scrubbing Fusion off, with even more harsh chemicals. It dries MUCH faster, will no chemical off gassing. That means those with lung issues won't be irritated by the chemicals evaporating. Furniture and appliances can be put back in @ 2 hours vs 24-48 with Fusion. The cement grout is MUCH BETTER for the environment, doesn't require an MSDS Safety sheet. Clean up is safe and easy. The choice is not difficult.

If you are an inexperienced DIY'er I would definitely NOT recommend this grout. Once I finished with my grouting (I used Platinum) I let it dry and after 5 days there were light gray, dark gray and white areas. This was probably my mixing "skill" but either way, be aware of this. Your mix and application must be REALLY GOOD or else you'll get the same results as me. GLTA.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's grayish in color and not brownish Home Depot shouldn't recommend this as the one to go with the montagna gunstock tiles. It was dark brown when it was wet but It becomes grayish once it is dry. Now after the fact, I am reading the same comments from others who bought this grout for montagna gunstock (see review under tiles). Home Depot should know their product better- we rely on you guys for DIY, disappointed!!
