When to seal sanded grout?

Still working on my bathroom project in the basement. I have the tub surround tiled and grouted. I will do the floor this weekend. I have a couple questions, 1.) when to seal the grout? and 2.) should I caulk the edges and back corners before or after sealing the grout?

Hi Mike,

You'll know the answer when you decide which sealer to use. Most sealers say to let the grout cure for at least a few days.

Caulk is part of the grouting process. So caulk then seal.
