Is grout necessary for tile flooring?

It may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about tile in Tampa, FL, but grout is a necessary element of this floor-covering option. Unfortunately, we are often asked if we can tile a home without it, and the answer is no.

You may hear some installers say that it’s possible, but the truth is, it can lead to a need to replace all your tile flooring decades sooner than necessary. Here are some facts to help you understand why grout is so important.

The protection of grout

One of the most critical characteristics of grouting is the protection it offers for your flooring needs. Our tile store associates can explain how grout keeps tile pieces from grinding against one another, causing chips, cracks, and breaks in the tile.

When properly sealed, grout resists mold, mildew, foul odors, and moisture for outstanding results that last for years. And when you choose the proper sealant, you'll only have to seal it once for lifetime results.

The beauty of grout

To change things up, ask about grout in different colors to match décor and add interest and depth to your flooring design. You'll even find epoxy grouts that offer more variation, with results that serve tile flooring well in any room.

Create beautiful results with trendy tile designs and gorgeous grout options in every room. There is no limit to the decorative options available in tile flooring.
