    Default Outdoor Tiling Grout Question

    Hi everyone,

    I've received a quote for tiling of my balconies and the tiler is planning to use CG2 grout. Has anyone used it?
    I would really appreciate some feedback if it's any good. The grout I previously had was dark grey (ASA I think?) and looked dirty very quickly so ideally I'm looking for some very high quality grout.

    Thank you!

    From what I understand CG2 is the grade of a cement based grout and is high grade, better than CG1.

    Elina, you have many questions relating to your repair work, which is good. What would be more helpful to us if you could explain if you have taken charge of this work, or is it the insurance company arranging the trades.

    My builder is generally arranging the trades and liasing with insurance, however I am doing my own due diligence on certain items. In this case, I am taking charge because my terraces weren't directly damaged from the fire this won't fall under insurance, however they currently don't meet waterproofing requirements, so I am using a tiler that I have previously used for this job.

    So you are using a tiler who previously did this job and it doesn't meet waterproofing requirements! Your inquiry was about grout so hope that isn't what you hope meets the waterproofing requirement.
