View Full Version : Grouting pitted marble

03-08-2004, 06:19 AM
This question is for a co-worker who has purchased some marble for the back splash in his kitchen. The marble that was purchased it what he calls pitted. His concern is when it comes time to grout the tile how do you get all of the grout out of the pits? Is it best to seal the marble prior to setting it so the grout does not get embedded in the pits? If so what great “Tile Your World” product to use?

Hi Peter,

I suspect he's talking about tumbled stone. Just grout over everything and don't worry about the holes. You won't lose the look. :)

Does the tumbled stone need to be sealed at some point?

After the grout has cured a few days. TYW Stone Armor, of course. ;)

Grout small areas at a time. Don't get strung out too far. Keep it to 6 to 8 square feet. Wash it up before continuing with the grout. That way there's no chance of getting in a bind. :)
