Grouting Ceramic Tiles

I hate grouting! It’s probably one of my least favourite home improvement projects, but it has to be done.
I think that overall, it would have been just as easy to use the type of epoxy grout I used for the countertop instead of this cement based grout, so for future projects I’ll use that instead. More expensive, but the results are 100x better.
This is part of my complete kitchen build and I’m making regular posts on the progress as it happens the website forum:

I had no idea you had a home improvement channel as well! 😀 thanks man, I’m about to do some grout as well

they sell a grout saw with carbide grit that is absolutely ideal for this. Just did a bathroom floor + walk in shower yesterday. took 20 minutes to knock down the excess mortar between the joints. And i was less than careful in a few areas (particularly the floor mosaic in the shower. lol)

pour the grout in a zip lock bag and cut a small hole much cleaner

Pettigrew Woodworks says:

Looks great. I wonder if you considered using an epoxy grout?

Bob Brackpool says:

Nice job John,
I have to ask, don’t you wear knee pads? I was tiling today and i can’t manage more than 5 mins without them.
Love the videos!


ART CORE says:

There’re a lot of videos here on YouTube about home DIY projects of all sorts of stuff but you have the best teaching method. Seems like you’re not promoting your self or your product but genuinely want people to learn so that they can do a good job themselves. Thanks.

I apprenticed under my father, a master stone mason from Sicily, back in my teens. I was supposed to follow in his foot steps. I worked with him on several floor tiling jobs, including my parent’s kitchen entrance floor. Adding the linseed oil to the dry grout work is a new one on me. Cool. I’ll remember this when the time comes do some tiling for myself. 🙂

Brian Freeman says:

Funny, I noticed that the booz or whatever was in the cabinet, slowly started missing bottles. Gotta stay hydrated I suppose! 😉

Eddie Figueroa says:

So where can you buy that type of seal???

Melvin Yehnert says:

Try using a micro fiber rag the next time you gout and you will never buy another sponge for the rest of your life.

Matt Lane says:

Damn, that looks great!!
