    *Cement-based grout

    Often used for DIY tile projects. It’s weaker than epoxy grout, but easier to work with.

    *Epoxy grout

    Epoxy grout is slightly more expensive than other types but it’s effective for tiles that require a high degree of water resistance, such as bathrooms.

    *Latex-modified sanded cement grout

    This is the similar to cement grout, but has an added degree of water resistance and bonding characteristics which makes it great for bathrooms and countertops.

    *Caulking grout

    This is squeezed from a tube by hand or from a caulking gun – great for filling tough-to-reach joints.
