Questions & Answers

Is this a true gray color?

Asked by: Blessed
If it is like the Light Smoke I purchased, NO!!!. I bought the darker grout to match my tiles and it dried almost beige. I purchased a porcelain wood grain tile and the light grout just ruins the look I was trying to get. I guess now I will try to color it . Another step I wasn't counting on having to do.

Depends on the size of the tile and the size of the grout lines. Small mosaic tile takes LOTS. Really nice grout.

How long to dry

Asked by: Ray
Depends on conditions. Wipe down after 15 minutes then allow another hour before cleaning tile. Best to sit overnight if it is a shower

Within the past 2 weeks a tile contractor installed Jeffrey Court Weather Grey tiles on a shower surround wall using Oyster Grey grout. I kept hoping that within a few days the grout would dry to an even color. It is now dry and the appearance remains the same. I was ready to blame the tile guy. But apparently it is my fault for requesting this grout. I have never had such an experience with grout. What we hoped would be a beautiful bathroom redo is simply an ugly nightmare and I can't bear to look at it. The project was very expensive. We also used this grout as recommended by Home Depot for the floor tile in the same room. It applied unevenly, displays similar inconsistency in color, and some cracks and pinholes are apparent. Results are awful all around, and I now wish I'd kept the 30+ year old 4x4 white tiles with original and almost pristine white grout. I would give it negative stars if I could.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dries uneven colors We used this grout on gray/taupe subway tiles for our tub surround. We mixed the grout according to the instructions, and it seemed fine when going on. All was good until it dried. It dried almost white in some places and dark gray in others. It was completely random and varied from white to dark gray over the entire project! When grouting we noticed streaks of red and orange pigments in the mix. We used a hammer drill to mix so it wasnt that it didnt get mixed enough. I couldnt leave it like that so i had to buy some grout renew and painted every single grout line in a slightly darker "delorean gray." That added an unnecessary 8-10 hours! (Yes, painting grout lines is a huge pain!). We finally have the look we were going for, but it took considerably more time and money than it should have. What a disappointment! We have used white grout by this company with no problems, but we will not buy any other colors of grout made by them. I would not recommend this color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why is the Color Sample Purple? This grout is dark brown After reading all the negative grout reviews, I did some research as to how NOT to have my dark grout turn out significantly lighter than anticipated and end up with white surface effervescence. I followed strict instructions on the water measurements and made sure my sponge was only damp. Also, i learned that grout has problem drying in humid or cold temperatures so I took a blow dryer to it to expedite the drying process and it did not effect the color. The Sable color is great with the tile I chose. I only got a bit of spotty grout toward the edges where you can't tell. And for people who are confused on what the color is. When you see the grout mix dry in the bag, that is the color the applied grout should dry to. My Sable brown looked like a melted chocolate bar when wet and dried lighter. I have posted a zoomed in photo for color comparison. On my computer screen the grout color sample looks purple lol

I used this product in conjunction with the Montagna Harvestwood 36" planks set with a 1/16" grout line. BTW I also tried the sanded version in this color on a 1/8" line. Same negative experience with both. I was wary of the product before I began, but vowed that I would "do everything right" and avoid the mishaps of others. The grout is terribly blotchy and unevenly colored. I precisely weighed the product and mixed religiously according to instructions. I used RODI water at 70 degrees F to do so and mixed by hand. I tried to avoid excessive wiping to the point of crawling around and only wiping the tile and not the grout line with a damp microfiber cloth. After several failed attempts, I decided to apply grout in my closet and just let the crap dry for 6 hours before wiping with lightly damp sponge. Same results. I have worked hard to get this right and tried it several times with a few batches and 2 boxes of product. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. Unfortunately, there aren't many alternatives at the big box stores and dark grout seems to be a problem. I have laid 500ft of tile with this product and plan to go to a pro shop to find some alternative for my remaining 900ft. The only reason that I haven't completely gone mad from this grout is because it is camouflaged by the irregular color of my tile. If I had solid colored tiles, it would have killed me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dries to a different color I had the same issue as other reviewers - once the grout dries the color lightens to a medium grey, not a charcoal as is pictured on the box. It seems like this is an issue with just about all black grout due to the amount of cement required. HOWEVER I was able to salvage my project by using polyblend's grout renew colorant/sealant - it's good to seal your grout anyway and the charcoal grout renew does dry black! I used the grout renew to brighten up dingy tile in the past so when I was disappointed in the color of this grout I was excited to see that they do make the grout renew in charcoal! I highly suggest that anyone planning on putting in tile with black grout uses the grout renew - I just used a toothbrush to scrub it on and wiped off the excess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do it in small batches Unless you are a pro I would suggest starting small. My starting mix was 6.7 dry oz. per 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz). My mixing container was a 8 oz. CoolWhip plastic container. I was grouting 1/8" joints with 9" x 12" tiles. Although I had Goldblatt tools tools, I used el-cheapos (3" and 6" plastic drywall knives and a $1.59 plastic float). I also had a plastic grout sponge and a 5 gallon bucket to rinse the tools in. I did two to three batches a day. Job ended up looking very nice with no screw-ups. The color was my wife's pick and she likes the look of the finished job. I did add a 2 1/2" accent border with mosaic tiles I had left over from the the kitchen I did several years ago. Very minimal cracking or crazing in the joints (some minor touch up needed). It took about 6 1/2 lbs. of grout for the entire job which consisted of the tub/shower surround, about 8 linear feet around the toilet , and a 6 linear feet of backsplash above the sink countertop. A total of about 80 sq. ft. of tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for a kitchen backsplash. Worked well. Easy to apply... Used for a kitchen backsplash. Worked well. Easy to apply with the right tools --got to have a good float. Very color true. Hint #1: save a little of the grout powder before mixing so you have some to fill in any air holes or gaps that you may miss in the initial application. You will be very glad that you did this!Hint #2: Take a picture or save the front side of the box so you have exactly what you applied should you need to match it up later. You may never need it, but it you didn't have it (trust me) you'll wish you did.

The instructions were easy to follow and had no issues spreading it into the small space between the glass, hexagon tiles. I was nervous at first as I accidentally grabbed the wrong color (light smoke) and did not realize it until it was too late. I thought it would be too dark but it dried several shades lighter and ended up looking really good!
