Understanding grout and new tile in Phoenix


Understanding grout and new tile in Phoenix. “A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose” (Gertrude Stein) “A grout is a grout is a grout is a grout.” (Anonymous) One of those statements is true, while the other – – not so much! And, UNDERSTANDING GROUT AND NEW TILE IN PHOENIX will allow you to know why “Anonymous” is more than a little off base!

“The thing is,” Chris Brown, second-generation owner of BRANDI CARPET in Phoenix, Arizona, shared, “there are a number of factors that need to be considered when you are choosing your Tile Grout, and UNDERSTANDING GROUT AND NEW TILE IN PHOENIX will help you achieve the right choice that much more quickly and effectively.”

The first choice you have to make in regard to Grout is, “Do you want a ‘coordinating’ or ‘contrasting’ color Grout to Tile?”
“Coordinating Grout color,” Brown explained, “will give you a ‘uniform’ look, while Contrasting Grout color will emphasize the tile pattern and designer color, providing a more unique installation.”
According to Brown, a competent PHOENIX CARPET AND TILE firm will be able to assist you in this decision-making manner.
“You see,” Brown continued, “Grout doesn’t just fill the void between tile, it plays a major aesthetic role as well.”

And, that’s not all it does. Other “roles” Grout fulfills includes, but is not limited to:

  •  Adds strength by bonding tile together.
  •  Prevents chipping and cracking of Tile edges.
  •  Adds durability to high traffic areas.

In regard to UNDERSTANDING GROUT AND NEW TILE IN PHOENIX, other things you need to consider include, but are not limited to:

  •  Cement vs. Epoxy or Furan
  •  Sanded vs. Un-sanded.
  •  Color choices

“Basically,” Brown explained, “you have three basic approaches when you choose Grout Color.”
The three are:

  •  Matching – Grout lines are less pronounced and the Tile is accentuated.
  •  Contrasting – Draws attention to the pattern; especially good when detailed geometric patterns are involved.
  •  Neutral – Utilizes “light” grays or beiges.
