Groutless tile flooring: Yes, or no?

Groutless tile flooring: Yes, or no?


New floors are an exciting remodel project, but there are many questions to ask, depending on your chosen material. One of the most common questions for tile installation relates to grout.

Can you install tile flooring without grout? The simple answer is no, but you'll want to know why and how it affects the flooring.
What is grout?

Grout is simply a mixture of sand, cement, and water, but it?s used to fill and set joints between tile flooring pieces. Our flooring company can explain great benefits like a crisp appearance, protection from embedded dirt between tiles, and increased strength.

Why is grout necessary?


One of the main reasons you need grout is that no two pieces of tile are perfectly and precisely square. The millimeters of difference is enough to cause tile pieces to accumulate dirt, grind against one another, and eventually crack and break.

The truth is that tile sometimes moves, and that movement is what causes breakage over time. These chances increase in areas with heavy traffic and activity levels, making groutless new floors a terrible idea.

Make the most of your grout


Grouting is well worth your time and offers many benefits, even if only installed in a small area. You can even choose colored grout to finish the beautiful visual in any space.
