We have discovered this particular production batch of Cabana is more susceptible to grout residue when using contrasting grout colours during installation. Therefore, as we cannot guarantee total customer satisfaction we have decided to clear this batch at a reduced price.
This is because, whilst we have tested the Ardex range of grouts we sell with our products, we have found some finer grained, dark coloured grouts, can occasionally cling to the textured surface, making it difficult to remove the grout residue. And whilst residue removers such as Fila’s Detredek and Lithofin’s Cement Residue Remover can help with lighter grouts, the absolute black grouts now available can leave a slight residue.
Therefore, with this batch, we only recommend the use of Ardex Flexible Tile Grout FL in a similar tone and using a 3-5mm grout joint.
We do not recommend using any fine grouts that are created for joints as small as 1mm, absolute black grouts or grouts containing Microban. As an additional precaution, we would also recommend these types of tiles should be pre-sealed using LTP Porcelain Tile Protector, as it helps with both the grouting process and ongoing maintenance. Please see product details for further application guidance.
As with all matt and crackle glaze tiles, if you choose to not use our range of Ardex grouts, then we suggest you test your chosen grout on the sample tiles prior to installation, to ensure you are happy with the finish before going ahead with purchase and installation.
