If you're under a time crunch for grouting, use a premixed grout. It's just as strong and effective as mixed grouts. It works well for time-sensitive jobs, because there’s no mixing! TEC® InColor™ Advanced Performance Grout comes in 32 colors and it's a ready-to-use. It's ideal for both commercial and residential, inside and outdoors - even for pools. It's stain-proof against most stains and installers like to use it for backsplashes and interior floors. Keep in mind though, don't use premixed grouts in areas with high heat, such as fireplaces and ovens.

#FlooringFriday: When it comes to controlling the moisture in the floor, it's critical for you to be proactive rather than reactive. The costs of damage to flooring for not properly mitigating moisture is just too high. Hopefully, you'll never have to go through it.
The answer to your moisture mitigation challenge is one-part TEC® LiquiDam EZ™, a liquid moisture vapor barrier that does not require a primer before application of surface preparation products. LiquiDam EZ™ can be directly applied to green concrete up to 100% RH and dries within 4-5 hours for same-day floor installation.
