I grouted less than 24 hours ago and when I wiped off the film today, I noticed my imperfections. I have a few pin holes, one spot that isn’t smooth, and some of the joints are not grouted close enough to the wall to be covered by the baseboard. That being said, I guess I have to mix up a tiny batch and fill the gaps. Can I also use wet grout over the dry grout to fix that part that isn’t smooth and also go over the pin holes? I am not sure you can put wet grout on dry grout, but is isn’t cured completely and will not be sealed. I am using Mapei Ultracolor FA.
Caulking steps and question. I will be installing wood baseboard, painting them ultra white, so do I install them, then caulk the floor/baseboard transition, the baseboard/wall transition and the floor/tub transition all with the same type? I will use utltra white caulk, I am not matching to the grout color, I am matching to the tub and baseboards. I am not sure what type of caulk is for those seams, can you tell me what to use and recommend any in particular?
So with the FA. anything that needs filled in again try to scrape it down to where you at least have a 1/16″ to fill. If you can get down a little further that would be best…..but not necessary
If your installing wood base, I would just get as tight to the floor as you can and nail in place. I would not caulk the base to the tile….that will be an area that will end up cracking and will probably look bad over time
Any additional questions let me know. I have this thread on to notify me
