Standard or ePoxy Grout?
Standard grout, which is found within most homes in WA, can be porous and brittle, allowing it to absorb moisture and crack. For this reason, many local regrouting companies will only offer a 2 to 5-year product warranty.
Standard grout is typically a blend of cement, water, and sand, which means it’s a porous material. It’s available in sanded or unsanded form. The sanded version is typically used for wider tile gaps, while the unsanded version is used for tiles that are placed closer together. Standard grout is cheap; however, it requires more maintenance than ePoxy grout, and being porous, it can stain and harbour bacteria. Therefore, you need to seal it regularly to keep it looking fresh.
ePoxy grout, as the name suggests, is made of epoxy resin and hardening agents. It’s a non-porous material with superior water resistance, which makes it ideal for bathrooms and other moisture-prone areas. ePoxy Grout doesn’t need sealing as it’s stain-resistant, doesn’t harbour bacteria, and is easy to clean. It’s also more durable than standard grout and can withstand heavy traffic, making it an excellent choice for commercial bathrooms.
