Hi, Dani.

Realize that a topical sealer requires routine maintenance as it isn’t what most people would call durable. It does look beautiful, though. In the long run, most folks who don’t pay...

It’s reasonable to expect that the grout joints are uniformly shaped. The examples you’re showing us are not relatively uniform. With cementitious grout, it is fixed by removing the grout to 2/3rds...

Are any of these tiled walls in a “wet” area? I ask because the grout colorants you speak of may or may not be rated for a wet area. :)

I’m afraid he isn’t aware of what is possible. There are snappers that will snap 10’ tiles.

The Mapesil will perform well. If you’re okay with the...
