Bathroom Tile and Grout vs. Waterproof Wall-Panel System
Zone 3, one -story slab-on-grade foundation all-brick home. In the bathrooms, we’re trying to see if there are better products to use besides the traditional tile and grout because grout has its cons. Chanced upon a laminate bath and kitchen wall product called FIBO wall which is supposed to be better than using tile and grout. Please share your opinion on which direction we should go. If you vote for tile, what type of grout should we use? I heard epoxy grout is good but sometimes too good that it doesn’t allow some permeability for water vapor to escape. Also, do we need some sort of subfloor on top of the slab before installing tile in bathrooms and maybe LVPs in other rooms? Worried about mold problems and want to avoid due to big health reasons. So confused, but wana do this right.
