It’s important to choose the right grout when installing tile. Sanded grout is great for areas with heavy foot traffic, while non-sanded grout works well on vertical surfaces.Shop Colors

Flooring Tools to Prep Your Flooring
You want to make sure you have the right floor primers and flooring tools and know the right steps before you start your flooring project. If you’re installing carpet, check out our carpet tools and supplies.
For tile and stone, start with tile tools and supplies like underlayment and backer boards. Underlayment covers flaws in the subfloor and can reduce sound and moisture. Backer boards work in dry spaces and wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
You’ll also need floor primers and floor levelers. Floor primers will improve the bonding of your subsurface to your underlayment. When it comes time to set your flooring, we carry a wide selection of tile mortar, tile caulk, tile spacers and adhesives.
All About Grout
Grout is an important part of the process when installing tile. Sanded grout works well on areas with heavy foot traffic, while non-sanded grout is great for vertical surfaces. Choose grout from Fusion Pro, Prism or Polyblend.
In addition to grout, we have lots of grout bags. A grout bag allows you to work longer without having to worry about refills. We also carry grout saws and grout remover tools to assist with your project.
