What Do You Charge To Grout


Ok, so I know mostly grouting is covered in the tile installation charges, but if your at a site that is tiled and all they want you to do is grout. What would you charge for installing the new laticrete permacolor select, thanks!

When I’ve seen it itemized it was $1.00 or 1.50/ft.

I only do residential work and ran into this twice. Laticrete themselves paid me $300 to grout a 5’x30” shower floor.

I avoid estimating by the square foot, too many variables. I prefer to look at the work. Or have pictures sent to me.

Materials, labor, profit = estimate.

Re: What Do You Charge To Grout


Grouting someone else's work is sketchy at best. Tile movement, floor assembly movement or a number of other errors can cause your grout installation to fail. Keep that in mind and make sure you give no warranty.

Definitely no warranty if you’re taking over someone else’s work.
