Do you use grout with marble tile?

Grout polished marble with tight joints (up to 1/8 inch) with nonsanded grout, since sanded grout will scratch the surface of the marble. Push the grout into the grout joints with the tip of the grout float. Wipe up excess with the edge of the float.

Just so, can sanded grout be used on marble tile?

The harsh aggregate material present in sanded grout can damage delicate materials such as granite, marble, limestone, and other soft stones. Sanded grout can work a lot like sandpaper. Unsanded grout is often the best choice for smooth, polished tiles like marble, even if the joint width is 1/8 or larger.

  1. Determine a square corner to establish a starting point.
  2. Measure and pop a chalk line the distance of two tiles (probably 24 inches) from one of the walls.
  3. Mix thinset according to the package directions.
  4. Continue working your way across the floor, using your grid lines to make sure the tiles are square and straight.

Additionally, do I need to seal marble tile before grouting?

Seal Marble Tiles Before Grouting Marble is porous and could easily absorb color from the grout, so it's important to seal the stone before you grout — even if you're using white grout. Just rub the tile's surface with a soft cotton rag that's damp with stone sealer.

How do you remove grout haze from marble tile?

Dampen the grout haze with pure water first to see if that removes it. Fill a sponge with water, wring most of it out, and pat the surface of the marble tile over the haze area with the damp sponge. Let it sit for several minutes and scrub lightly with the sponge to remove the haze.
