Do You Grout Over Tile Spacers?

Aug 28,2023

When laying tiles, tile spacers are a key tool for ensuring consistent spacing between tiles. However, once all the tiles have been installed and are waiting to dry, many people wonder whether they should remove these spacers or fill the gaps with grout.

In fact, when using tile spacers, they should not be removed before filling with grout. Tile spacers provide even and consistent spacing, allowing each gap between tiles to be filled during grouting. If you remove the tile spacers before grouting, it may result in uneven or hollow surface joints.

On the other hand, if you forget to remove the tile spacers after grouting, it may affect the final result because leaving them in will cause the joints to become narrower, making grouting more difficult. In addition, untreated tile spacers will become even more difficult to remove once they have dried.

Therefore, the correct method is to use spacers when laying tiles and not to remove them before filling with grout. Immediately remove the tile spacers after grouting to avoid narrow surface joints and make untreated tile spacers even more difficult to remove.

In summary, tile spacers are an important tool for achieving consistent spacing between tiles. Before grouting, do not remove these spacers or fill the gaps with grout. The correct method is to use spacers when laying tiles and not to remove them before filling with grout. Immediately remove the tile spacers after grouting to avoid narrow surface joints and make untreated tile spacers even more difficult to remove.
