Keeping tile floor free from cracks
Ceramic tile is supposed to be the ultimate sanitary system—a floor you could turn a hose on. But every grout seam between tiles is a potential weak link where the water goes when a crack develops. And in bathrooms, the weakest seams are along grouted edges of full and partial tiles that bump up against vanities, toilets and particularly tubs.
