Grout for vinyl floor tiles?


THanks for responding. My vinyl tile was $1.35 a square foot and it only came in 2 styles so we very well may have the same kind. I did click on the link and its not carried anywhere in my region it seems. I see many pail grouts but none that are adhesive and grout combination. I will have to go to the store and see what they recommend, but I'd rather use something that i know worked for someone else. Cause my store has lead me stray before! If you can find out the actual product, please post back. Thanks a bunch!

Grout for vinyl floor tiles?


Tile makers recommend the proper grouts for their tile.
USE WHAT THE MANUFACTURER SUGGESTS.

Asking-around willy nilly can get you into trouble.

Grout for vinyl floor tiles?


techprincesse,

Just to confirm, I double-checked the grout container at my rental property today. It's exactly the stuff I pointed you to earlier: Simple Fix Adhesive and Grout.

It's only been a month, but it's holding up great on my laundry room floor. Absolutely no issues to date, and I love how easy it is to work with this pre-mixed adhesive grout. Good luck with your project!

Grout for vinyl floor tiles?


TitaniumVT,

How is you 2009 Laundry room vinyl installation with grout holding up? We are thinking about putting this into the kitchen, dining room and hallway area of a double wide trailer. My big concern here is possible cracking in the grout caused by the vibration that occurs across the home when the washing machine is running in the laundry room.

Two years later and it looks as good as it did then. There's been no cracking or damage to the floor. It's turned out to be a great flooring option for the laundry room.

I just laid what is called " luxury vinyl tile" from Lowes,and grouted it with an acrylic grout called Blue Hawk,also from Lowes.It is made specifically for vinyl.
Hope this helps.It seems to be very good stuff!
