Dan, I should have taken more pictures of that floor before I tiled it. The previous shower leaked from day one and rotted out the floor joists in that whole end of the bathroom, so they had to be...

Do you happen to know what size tiles you'll likely be using in those projects? My tile saw choice wouldn't be the same for mosaics as it would be for 12x24 tiles. This is why I have 3 different size...

This has nothing to do with epoxy grout but a surface applied membrane on a shower floor will hold the moisture directly under the tiles. If the shower isn't used, the water will eventually dry out....

Sometimes this is a problem when grouting with dark grout on a light colored stone and is why we recommend making a sample board before grouting the real deal. I'd give it more time like Bubba said.

Epoxy grout is great but mold can grow on any grout. The key is keeping the shower clean and good ventilation.

Stand back and look at it. If it's noticeable to your eye then you might want to change it. It's possible that it might become more noticeable as you install more tiles.

Customs Prism is my go to grout these days. I find it very easy to work with and the color stays consistent. I could be wrong but I think grouting pebbles with Fusion could be a big mess.

Just wondering, would your home insurance be higher with a metal roof since it's more expensive to replace? Does the metal hold up better in a hail storm?
