    I have a natural stone pool patio, but the grout that was supposed to come out dark grey to highlight the stone bleached out to be just a regular concrete look…they didn’t use the right amount of dark dye in the cement in my opinion…I tried a sample of your dark grey last year in a couple of sample spots but it came out dark brown…not good…do you have any dye that will stay dark grey or black..I read a review and it said that right now nothing you have will come out those colors..let me know if anything has changed over the past year and if u figured out how to produce those shades

      Thanks for your comment. I’m not sure what dark grey you are referring to as we don’t have a product with a color by that name but if you are trying to darken an existing grout line, I would suggest a tinted concrete sealer in Charcoal or Black and apply using a foam roller to run along the grout lines. I’d suggest a solvent based sealer as the base. I can’t think of reason why that would not work. I’d suggest two coats minimum and you can use the same variety clear sealer to cover the tinted for greater longevity if you wish. Please let us know if you have any further questions. © 2018
