I had a contractor install ceramic wood-like tiles. I bought this grout for 1/16th lines. Unfortunately this grout came out lighter, almost white in majority of the places. Very few places have the true color. Why did this happen and how can I fix it?

Answer: 
Color variations can occur in any Portland-Cement product including grout. Efflorescence (whitish powder) can also occur. Typically, a sulfamic-acid cleaning will alleviate this discoloration. For further assistance please contact our installation division at 800.272.8786 option 2

Noticed this right away but let it dry completely and it is still gray and it has been a month. I am going to request that he remove the grout and reapply but worried it will turn out the same.

April 1, 2016
I am grouting a 5 foot x 5 foot area of 4 in x 4 in tiles on bathroom wall. Only the 10 pound size was available so I got it, but it's way too much product to mix up for this little bit of grout work. Figured I'd use what I need now, and save remainder for future.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 334 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great if you follow instructions! This is for platinum color, used with marble basketweave mosaic on a bathroom floor, the tile had 2 applications of grout & tile sealer before grouting. I used about 1.5 boxes for 50 square feet. The mix rate is 3 PINTS (NOT parts) per 10lb bag. After applying the grout, use the driest possible damp sponge to remove the excess. Keep in mind you are not washing away the excess, but rather rubbing it off with the sponge. Using excess water at this stage waterlogs the grout and causes the efflorescence that many reviewers commented on, making the final appearance much lighter. You must keep rinsing and wringing out ALL the water from the sponge. I am giving this 4 stars because both boxes had some bits of red pigment that kept smearing while I was spreading, and I had to go back and rub it out. August 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Non-sanded grout - light smoke This process of grouting was much better this time as the right product was used. I love the color and it tremendously help me keeping my kitchen's appearance looking cleaner and chic. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Consider this grout for dark colored tile. This color grout was chosen based upon the tile sample in the store - when my 650 sq ft of tile was grouted using the polyblend non sanded tobacco brown, it dried white. Now how very disappointing to have that happen when you've been living on concrete for 3 months after the flood and you are anxious to get your house back together and now I'm going to spend time acid washing the grout after allowing the minerals to come to the surface - which takes 10 days - THEN stain the grout to its true color. REALLY? This product needs to be pulled from the shelf. When you invest in the materials and the labor involved - this should be a one time effort. The other option of achieving a true color is to remove the grout and use a high performance grout, fusion grout, or apoxy grout...which is a lot more expensive, but had I studied the reviews on this grout prior to the purchase, I would have at least considered the other more expensive choice. This choice of grout might be ok if you are shooting for a lighter color grout - as in alabaster - because it is the nature of the grout to leach minerals to the surface and look lighter in color. It is definitely not a choice for darker grout when you don't want the seams to show. I was trying to achieve a natural look - not a brick look. Sooo disappointed! June 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by non sanded grout I would have liked to have more specific mixing instructions on the package. I kept mixing the grout too thin. Having ratios listed would have been helpful to a novice like me. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Color true to label, minimal cracking I used this on mosaic wall tile with spacing ranging from 1/16 to 1/8 inch. It works great in the 1/16 spaces, but I noticed some shrinkage and cracking in some of the spaces that were exactly 1/8 inch. The non-sanded grout is more difficult to sponge off compared to sanded so it is more time consuming to use. Polyblend is my preferred brand for grout due to the color consistency of the label with the final result. Polyblend sanded is my preference when tile spacing allows, non-sanded worked almost as well in my application with smaller spacing. April 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oyster Grey Color Grout Grout color is exactly as shown on the packaging. Mixes easily and well. Really finishes a tile project August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 4 hours to remove excess! I used this grout on 1/8" subway tile. I followed the directions precisely. The consistency was like melted rubber. I applied the grout and it worked pretty easy for awhile but my float was unable to remove excess well. It dried pretty quickly and I spent four hours with a wood chisel removing it and trying to form the best lines that I could. I would recommend a tough grout float and small batches. I have never used this grout so I could not tell what the consistency should be. The whole experience was very frustrating. The one upside is that the color came out consistent. February 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Product... I wish I had read the reviews on this grout. I did all my research on the tiles but never thought about the grout. I was fortunate as my tile is a weathered grey and the patchiness blends in so it still looks good. However, I am returning the color I purchased for bath tile as I am very concerned I will not be as lucky. August 21, 2016
