Install the tile in a "continuous running bond" pattern, taking care to stagger vertical seams as best as possible to minimize the appearance of vertical joint lines up the wall.
Use grout in vertical joins to further minimize joint line visibility.
We recommend Custom brand grout [sanded or non-sanded], available at Emser branches:
|Hamlet (stone) Color||Custom Grout Name||Custom Grout #|
Natural stone may be sealed with a penetrating, water based sealer:
Aqua Mix® Sealer’s Choice® Gold – Rapid Cure Formula
Miracle Sealants Company 511 Impregnator
Do not use acid wash because it has been known to have an adverse effect on stone and can possibly cause staining, etching, and rusting.
