Sealing Grout/Tile

3 posts in this topic

Just laid a slate flooring in my bathroom and am wondering if i need to seal it. Most of the floow is covered with rugs most of the time? I did buy a bottle of sealer from Homer Depot but really don't know if it's necessary??

Thanks

sealing it will make it easier to clean.Basically it's putting a clear coat over the top to protect it. Do a litte looking on line to see what they recommend for the slate. Grout sealers may or may not be what you need. You can seal the grout for sure. When slate was very popular 30 years ago, "slate dressing" was used. Not sure if that is recommended now or not. gl

Sealing is always a good idea, make sure that you find one that is not just a surface sealer, but one that is a penetrating sealer, do the slate and the grout, slate is relatively porous and will stain...you can get the "wet" look with a quality stone enhancer or you can go with the natural look. Stonetech makes good sealers and I think HD might carry that kind...

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
