The grout sealer is an extremely important material for safeguarding the surfaces of the tiles in the bathroom walls and floor owing to the maximum exposure to water throughout the day.
It provides an additional protective cover over the grout layer. The dry grout layer is porous in nature and allows moisture to absorb inside letting the moisture get blocked into walls and floors. Therefore it is essential to apply a water resistant grout sealer once the grout is completely dried up.
Water resistance is one of the key issues of challenge during bathroom construction or renovation period. However, it is essential to understand the entire process of proper construction and the amount to be spent for each phase. Installing a water resistant tile backer is a good idea to keep the bathroom in appropriate condition for longer duration.
Some tile backers require an additional waterproofing system to be placed between the tiles and the tile backer. Generally an extra sheathed membrane is used to accomplish such work.
