Where to buy Prism or Ultracolor grout.

Trying to find a place that stocks Prism or Ultracolor grout in the Houston TX area. Would like to avoid the 2 week lead time at the big box stores.

Thanks, Jim

The Lowe's around here sell small bags of the Ultracolor Plus FA, but they charge double what it costs at a tile supplier.

I was looking for the color frost which apparently they do not keep in store stock. It would have to be ordered and would take two weeks to get it. You're roght about the high price at lowes. I am trying to find a place that has it in stock so I wouldn"t have to wait the two weeks.

You should be able to get UltraColor at SwiffTrain.

It's on Brittmore Rd, just outside the Beltway and 290.

Dal tile probably has it but you may have to find a contractor to buy it for you. Or, print up a few business cards that says Jim's Tile and maybe they will make a cash ticket for you. You may also have to wear your old wore out pants and mess up your hair a little to fit in. Tell them you just started your own bidness.

I would call Dal tile and ask them to check their other stores in Houston. The Dal tile I use in Plano stocks Prism but other Dal tile stores in the area my not.
