Hello. I just had an outdoor patio tiled by a pro (he did a fantastic job by the way). I decided to seal the grout myself and after doing some web research, decided upon Aqua Mix Choice Gold sealer, one of the most expensive options. My grout was a terra cotta color, medium hue, but after sealing it, the grout lightened quite a bit. It looks almost pink now. I was told that grout tends to darken after sealing. Darker would have been a better outcome. Did I go wrong somewhere? OK, OK, I didn't test a patch first, but after spending $120.00 a gallon, I figure I couldn't go wrong.
