I would like to start by first thanking everyone here. My first tiling project is nearing it's end (300 sq. ft. kitchen). My wife thinks it looks great, I don't believe I'll be changing careers anytime soon however, it was a lot of hard work. Now on to the question. We used TEC grout, can anyone suggest a quality sealer and preferred method of appalication? I want to give this masterpiece the best finishing touch. Thanks again!!!!!!!!

make sure your grout cures for at least 48-72 hours before sealing it.

try:

AquaMix - Grout Sealer (http://www.aquamix.com/products/pg_detail.asp?pdid=43145&pgid=37155)

or

TileLab - Grout Sealer (http://www.custombuildingproducts.com/ProductCatalog/TileStoneCare/PenetratingSealers/GroutTile.aspx)

"aqua-mix gold" seems to work very well. Likely you will have to find it in a tile shop and not Hd or Lowes

You can't go wrong with 511, Mere. Nor with Aqua Mix Sealer's Choice Gold. Both very good products. StoneTech Heavy Duty is another good one. :)

TileLab? Who would ever recommend TileLab? :blah: Must be a Ford owner. :D
