Flooring and Carpeting/grouting quarry tile

Question
mudroom tile
mudroom tile  
I just finished laying quarry tile in the mudroom.  Do I need to seal the quarry tile before grouting?

Answer
Jacque,

If the tile is porous...or has a semi rough surface I would. It will help considerably with the cleaning process.

If you don't seal prior be prepared to use more elbow grease and some vinegar to cut the dried grout in stubborn spots.

VERY NICE WORK !
