While grouting is not always discussed in great depth at the design consultancy stage, it is frequently a point of contention when the tiling work is finished. Most tile retailers will confirm that ‘misaligned grout lines’ is their number one consumer complaint.
In this Bulletin, we’re exploring how these complaints can be pre-determined and avoided at the selection and design stage. We’ve answered questions like:
- What is grout and why is necessary?
- Why do joint widths (grout lines) matter?
- What are the ‘rules’ around joint widths (Australian Standards)?
