As far as grout goes, I would stay away from Custom Polyblend. Waaaay to unpredictable. You could end up with 5 different shades in 5 feet or less. Laticrete Permacolor is far superior in my opinion....

Generally speaking quarry tile has a mild texture. Even if it is sanded down it will be painfully obvious. I say painfully because it’s already been mentioned that appearance is important and you...

Unless you have “smart “ sandpaper that knows when to stop removing grout when it gets to the tile surface I don’t see that working. You will end up with portions of the tile with a sanded face.

Sounds like around 75 sq ft. Are replacement tiles available that match the existing floor? I still think the best option is to replace. I don't really see any way to get that epoxy removed.

If it were me I would be removing the tile completely and starting over. That epoxy grout will never be removed and the floor looking normal. If like you say the tile was not properly set to begin...

Not necessarily. If the stone sounds solid you can cut the grout out and re-grout. The grout is cracked for some reason though. If it's because of the fridge then the stone might have popped loose....

I'm with Davy. What was used to bond the stone other than the mason mix? I have seen a lot of masons plop a mortar bed down with no bonding mortar on the substrate or the back of the stone. Every...

If you can't remove the marks with a wet cloth the marble is likely etched and they won't come out, easily anyway. I would keep trying to contact the company responsible. FWIW marble doesn't really...

I disagree with that big time. Whatever Jim. I'll leave it at that and hope this thread survives the PC club.

No matter the tile size, control lines mapped out solve that problem. Fit everything into the grid as you go. Not many options at this point.

You might want to re-think the marble penny tile for the shower floor Spencer. Plenty of "marble shower floor gone bad" threads hereabouts. Maybe a porcelain marble look a like?

That's a bummer Nick. Otherwise your job is A game. That's why I just grout and don't caulk. I prefer to chance a minor crack vs a racing stripe.
