Question

Is there any added benefit to buffing ceramic tile after it is set and grouted?

If so what kind of buffer pad should I use?

There is no need what-so-ever. In fact you could be creating a need for ongoing maintenance that otherwise would not be necessary.

That said, I know of many people and businesses that use a liquid wax on their "quarry tile" then buff it regularly.

But that's quarry tile.

Ditto.

Where is Steele? I mean, I know where Phenix City is, and Montgomery, and Birmingham . . .

Talking Steele?

John,

About 40 miles north of Birmingham off of I-59; it will be exit 176.

Another way to find it would be to drive up 59 until your culture meter goes through the roof, or when you spot some good ol' boy relieving himself on the side of the highway.

Just be careful not to hit me while your knocking back some longnecks..

Ribar,

My culture meter bottomed out when I hit Columbus, Ga. back in the sixties. Since then it's been all on the positive side. To be fair, though, Columbus was an Army town and not indicative of the South as a whole, which I have learned to appreciate through the years.

And, so many Yankees have come south, poor ol' Bubba hardly has a place to take a whiz anymore. Guess we're all getting cosmopolitanized. (Did I make a new word again?)

Exclamation Amen!

Amen to that John.

Though I did not post very many questions during the recent DIY adventure I frequented your site when in doubt.

CONGRATULATIONS to all moderators for getting me through my first tile setting experience. It was a 330 square feet L-shaped Kitchen/Hallway with diagonally laid 12 inch ceramic tile.

My wife is really pleased....Boo Yaa!!!!

as the forum poet, I would recommend
"Cosmopolised"
pr cauz-'maup-awliz'd
boo-yah, indeed
hoo-hah has more meaning. If only to myself, (but being the poet I can say that without fear of any meaningful retribulated verbation, hehe)
