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...

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
