Customer Questions & Answers

Does this product repel water?

It says that it repels stains--I have applied 3 coats but the grout still darkens when I mop meaning water is absorbing. Should I continue to apply coats until it no longer darkens/absorbs? Or does it just "repel" stains?
Asked by: LisaK
Yes, it repels water.

Dose grout and tile sealer expire?

Asked by: Anonymous
Truly unless there is a date on the bottle, NO it doesn't expire. As long as the brush is cleaned up afterwards, you can use it again.

Is this a penetrating or membrane-forming sealer?

Is this a penetrating or membrane-forming sealer?
Asked by: RJ
The bottle does not say if it is "penetrating or membrane-forming". As I have not used it yet I really can't endorse at this time. I'll be glad to do this and should be using this product in the next 10 days.

TileLab 6 oz. Grout Sealer is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 212.

I just finished a Kitchen Back splash with a 4" strip of assorted glass tile mosaic, including handmade tiles of varying thicknesses and anywhere from 1" to 4" long. Thus, the grout is not always at the same depth. My back splash is about 32 ln ft. with 3 rows of large subway tile (also from Home Depot) and this 4" strip inserted 8" up from the counter. So there was a lot of detail work sealing all the grout. Total time for me to put 2 coats on was about 2 hours. It used up probably 90% of the bottle. There were a few issues using this product: - First off the wall is obviously vertical and this product would work better on a horizontal surface. It's very runny and the design makes it difficult to get the sealer up under the cabinet and seal the higher grout. It's doable but awkward. - Secondly, even though it has a little brush, the sealer would run off the brush at different locations (not always at the end of the brush), so you couldn't always get it right where you wanted. And because of the irregular grout pattern, I basically butchered the brush by the end of the job. - Thirdly, because its clear and I was using it on white tile with bright white grout, under cabinets blocking the light, it was difficult to tell if the sealer was actually getting on the grout or just running down the face of the tile. I solved this by using my little flashlight when I applied the second coat, shining it at an angle across the tile so I could tell what was wet. Sooo, I don't know what other options are out there and if I had it to do over again I would see if there are other options but wouldn't be too worried about having to use this again. 2 hours wasn't too bad for 2 coats and if it keeps the grout from staining I'll be happy!

A few days ago I had my bathroom remodeled. On the floor I used the Polyblend #145 Light Smoke Sanded Grout by Custom Building Products. The color of this grout blended in with the tiles almost perfectly, making it very hard to see the grout line. After I applied the grout sealer according to he directions everything seem to look OK. However several hours later the grout lines became a very light gray, almost white. Now the grout lines stand out like sore thumbs. Maybe those people who had no problem with this grout sealer had a light colored grout. It definitely had a detrimental effect on my light smoke colored grout. On the bright side, so far it looks like this grout sealer didn't affect the tiles themselves. Only the grout. Think twice before using this product. And highly recommended to read the reviews.

The price was good compared to a whole jug and the applicator tip made it easy to use. The only downside was that when the bottle got low the sealer did not flow consistently.

I'm sure this product is fine for detailing edges or corners of floors (horizontal application), but we used it for a backsplash. I didn't want to buy a big spray bottle for <25sf of tile, but given the design of the bottle with the little brush, it was a hassle. I would rather buy the spray-on product and use a piece of cardboard to cover the cabinets wherever I'm spraying--sort of like covering a wall when spraying Kilz on a ceiling. I also think the mist from a sprayer would adhere better to the grout during application rather than the stream that comes out of this bottle. They're all the same substance (the liquid itself), but the application would be much more user-friendly with a spray bottle.

I put (3) coats on my bathtub grout so it wound not suck up the shower water and change color when that happens. After all 3 coats it did not not keep this from happening, I thought the purpose of sealer was to seal the grout?

There is more work involved cleaning the area than applying it. Just apply to all grout and wait 5 minutes and then wipe off with a microfiber towel. Wait 30 minutes and apply a second coat if need be. After doing this to my shower I noticed there was nothing stated about it stopping or anything about mold and mildew. So keeping my fingers crossed that this might at least minimize that problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very expensive water this product does nothing. yes, the applicator bottle is very handy, but the product itself is worthless. luckily my grout is light, so I didn't have the issues with the white residue I'm seeing a lot of people post about, but after two applications water still absorbs right in to the grout. I will be returning the product for a refund and luckily I didn't spend too much time on this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Product This is a super easy to apply nightmare. It claims to be water-based, i.e.: super easy clean up if you get some on your tile. After applying this to a room, all of the grout went from a dark brown to very light brown and there are now spots all over the tile where it "bled" off the grout. As this product goes on clear, it's difficult to tell if some spills onto the tile, being "water-based" that shouldn't be a big deal. Four hours of scrubbing with vinegar, I still have spots on my tile and my grout is still the wrong color. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is in fact not water based, I'll have to remove all of my grout to fix the area.
