    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
