    Hi
    I normally best guess my grout needs for a job, have this job the tiles are 25mm thick on average, average 320mm long x 220mm.
    35 sq meter.
    They want a 10mm joint as they tge tiles are bowed and and miss shapen.
    Used an app to work out the grout needs and it comes up with 105kg.
    Anyone got a sum i can use or know if this is right.
    Cheer.

    I've just tried it on a different grout calculator and comes up similar. Gotta be right

    Some cost. Going to have to have a chat with them. They are adamant on a 10mm grout line. Be a small fortune.

    Suppose it won't account for adhesive in the joint. Especially with thick stone if using a large notch there'll be a good few mm taken up with addy

    is it for floors years ago we wood use plastering sand and portland cement and a lime never had any problems.
    after all grout simply means gap filler

    We've recently updated our grout calculator on our new website: weberjoint premium - https://www.uk.weber/weberjoint-premium

    With the details your specified we'd say 100.67kg (of weberjoint premium). Different grouts have different densities (some are finer than others), but you can check the grout calculator on any of our grouts to find the quantity you'll need.

    Our grouts: Joint (Tile Grouts) / Products & Systems | Weber United Kingdom - https://www.uk.weber/search-content/content_type/product/activities/joint-tile-grouts-50

    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

    Rays point is a valid & if you do go old school & use the remaining mixture for dryers you will cut out the chance of dragging out the grout also
