Yet another grouting question
Author: Ryan

How high is the grout actually supposed to be? We just completed a small bathroom with the Moss colored tile and you can see a thin, light colored line around the edge of each tile as the grout line is just below the top of the tiles. I wasn’t sure if this was normal, or if we need to go over it again and get the grout line flush with the top of the tiles.

Thanks in advance.

The ideal height of the grout line would be just at or slightly below the micro-bevel which looks like a light colored line around the Moss tile. Normally, you wouldn't want the grout line all the way to the top surface of the tile, but that is a "personal taste" question.

From your description, it sounds like your application is normal.

You'll generally want to stay off a freshly grouted floor for 24 hours. Keep to light foot-traffic from 24-72 hours. Avoid heavy cleaning/scrubbing for the first week.

I watched the video, and it said you could put appliances back "immediately", but light foot traffic for 24 hours? How soon can I use my 2 wheeler to put the appliances back; they don't have wheels like in the video.

You should be fine moving the appliance back into place while the grout is wet. You might need to touch-up the grout if the wheels disrupt the groutline.

The key thing is you don't want continuous traffic/movement on the floor for the first 24 hours.

Send us a picture when its done at SubmitMyFloor@snapstone.net!
