Customer Questions & Answers

Is this a true gray color?

Asked by: Anonymous
No! Much lighter than expected, almost like a darkened white. Disappointing, as I was looking for something to set off the spacing between tiles, and this just blended in. I wish I would've gone darker.

What is your most "pure" white colored grout?

I purchased and installed "Bright Snow White" porcelain tile, and I am not sure if your "Bright White" or your "Snow White" would be the best match. Is there a dramatic difference between the two? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

My contractor used Bone #382, and it pretty much just looks like caulking.

Polyblend #52 Tobacco Brown 10 lb. Non-Sanded Grout is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 609.

I used Polyblend #381 non-sanded grout last week to regrout a shower floor. The grout is easy to mix with a drill. Pour the grout into your water; don't pour water into your grout. Mixing took about 10 minutes, and the ratio of grout to water in the instructions resulted in smooth, creamy, lumpless grout that stuck were I need it to stick. The Bright White looks great with the brown tiles. You can see the dramatic improvement in appearance in the photos below. Custom Building Products customer support was also responsive an helpful; they told me that I could mist water onto the grout 3 or 4 times a day for the 1st 3 days and that I should wait 4 more days before sealing.

I am thrilled with the color of grout I picked for my floors (Delorean Gray). I used the unsanded for my mosaic floors and subway tiled shower surround and it turned out perfectly!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nightmare!!! I am incredibly disappointed. We used tobacco brown color with our wood look tile. It has dried grey and blotchy. I have done research and spoken to professionals in the industry about the problem. I've gathered that it's efflorescence and its a rare problem. However, it does not seem to be rare in this particular brand of non-sanded grout. Make sure you read all of the reviews! We now have to wait 7 days to treat the floor and hope it looks right. We also have to spend more money and time to get ok looking floors. The man I spoke to from customer service said it was from minerals in the stone the grout is made from, not from hard water or minerals in the water. I am very unhappy with the solution they have given me. So unhappy that we will be removing the grout and applying a different product.

It dosent clean up or work in grout (1/16) lines. It ended up being a lot of work with a couple of regrouts. Working the joints and clean up was a nightmare. This product is probably best left to a professional.

I purchased this product to re-grout an area which had some cracks in the grout and a hollow/loose tile. I first removed the old grout and reset the hollow tile, then applied this product in accordance to the directions. I have a few comments regarding the recommended timing when mixing, sponging and wiping off the haze: 1. initial mixing: the directions said to wait 10 mins for it to set up then remix. That was way too much time for my conditions (temp/humidity). I waited 5 mins then a final mix and applied it. 2. wait time to sponge/feather: the directions said to wait 10-20 mins. Once again I only waited 10 mins and the consistency of the grout was perfect to get a nice finish on it and feather into existing grout using a damp sponge. 3. wait time to wipe off haze: the directions said to wait 2 hours. That worked perfectly for me. I used a generous size cheesecloth and with a flat hand easily removed excess haze from the tiles and near the grout channels. The point I'm making is the grout in the channel had set up just enough that it wasn't affected. Overall, I really like the product and will definitely use it again. In fact, I'll use it to re-grout another area of tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and easy We first bought the color "Light Smoke" which matched our wood look tile floor perfectly on the color chart and in the powder and wet mixed form; however when it dried, it was at least 2 shades lighter. We were disappointed, not in the performance of the product, but in the color. We bought the "Tobacco Brown" color which was at least 2 shades darker than our tile and it dried to the perfect color to blend with our tile. The unsanded Polyblend Grout is a great product that mixes easily without any lumps. We used grout admix instead of water, because it promised less shrinkage. We have found this grout and other Custom products to be of the highest quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Polyblend for grouting tile I purchased this item over sanded for two reasons, they offered a 10 pound bag instead of the standard 15lb sanded bags. I replaced several broken tile pieces and both products didn't offer anything smaller so I decided on polyblend. As well my curiosity on this item drew some interest as why I opted out on the sanded grout. Good product, the mixing part takes a bit longer then sanded grout. Also, I wouldn't use this product for larger groups or if laying Saltillo tile. Even on the box its clearly stated that it recommends up to a "" certain size. I forget, if I have to guess, 1/8". But overall it's alright. The poly substance has now entered the tile market. What's next, poly for mixing mortar.
