How to apply grout

Now that you've chosen your grout superhero, it's time to choose the right application tools to conquer those gaps. Here are some pro tips for a flawless application:

Preparation: Clean your tiles thoroughly and ensure they're dry before applying grout. Use Weber tools like grout rakers, which help in removing all loose particles from the tile joint and ensure that the surface is completely dust-free.

Mixing: Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for mixing various types of grouts (cementitious and grout). Ensure the mixing is done with the help of proper mixing tools to get optimum product performance. 

Apply and Clean: Spread the grout using a squeegee diagonally across the tiles, pressing it into the gaps. Once applied, remove excess grout from the surface with the help of a squeegee before cleaning it with a damp sponge/scrubber in a circular motion to avoid pulling grout from the joints.

Final Cleaning: After allowing the grout to cure for the recommended time, remove any haze with a dry cloth to reveal the true beauty of your tiled masterpiece.
