We recently installed tile in our kitchen. It's upstairs in a 50 year-old home. We knew the floor was "soft" in that it had saggy spots and we had access to most of the joists. We shored those suckers up as best we could and laid the tile. We used tile adhesive rather than thin-set believing (perhaps erroneously) that it would accomodate any latent flexibility in the floor.
Everything looked and felt great until about 2 weeks later when we began to notice spots where the grout was crumbling. Not everywhere, just a few spots. We corrected some of the problems with additional shoring, but others aren't going away.
You can't actually feel the "softness" of the floor. It appears to be just enough flex to ruin the grout.
Will an epoxy grout (or any other product!) solve this problem, or are we doomed?
