It's no secret that cement-based grout can cause many headaches. Its porous composition makes it susceptible to damage from weather. It can crack and peel away under exposure to the elements, and it is prone to absorbing dirt and getting mold and mildew embedded in it. Over time, cement grout picks up stains and begins to lose its visual appeal. Even when it is sealed properly, cement-based grout is a poor choice. It's cheaper, of course, which is why so many people still use it, but the lower cost doesn't really amount too much when you take into consideration its limited lifespan.
Epoxy grout, on the other hand, is a far better product. Let's just answer the title question right up front. Epoxy grout is stain resistant and water resistant because it isn't porous like cement grout. This means epoxy grout lasts longer than cement grout. It also makes epoxy grout the best choice for both indoor and outdoor settings, particularly in spaces where you can expect a lot of moisture.
When it comes to epoxy grout, there's no better choice than Litokol's Starlike grout. Litokol is a leader in innovative grout products and respected by industry professionals over the world, not only for its high level of quality, but for its aesthetic appeal as well.
