What correct tile grout should be used
What tile grout should be used around my shower bath?
There are several types of grout on the market, and most are produced with different aspects in mind , grouting can be rigid or flexible ; which u would use if tiles are laid upon a wooden subrate( flexible grout will prevent the grout from cracking and breaking up) you can get grout especially for wet areas as most grouts are not totally waterproof . Personally I always if possible use a grout suitable for use on swimming pools, this product is slightly more expensive but will last much longer .

Around a shower unit requires a good quality grout, one of the best on the market is made by a company call 'BAL' they design grout especially for shower areas. Be aware that a top quality adhesive is just as important as the grout!
