    Do you use the grout around the perimeter then cualk over it? If not and you have to caulk only, how do match and make an exposed grout line to match the snap stone grout?

    Great question! Never grout the perimeter expansion area, the flexible grout isn't flexible enough. Most areas that are at the perimeter will be covered by base or quarter round, but if you have some cuts that meet up to a tub or shower base then decrease the expansion gap to about 1/8" and use a flexible sealant that matches the tub or shower base instead of trying to match the grout color. The SnapStone people are pretty smart, so I would be suprised if they aren't working on matching sealants allready.
    I hope this helped. If I misunderstood the question, please let me know.
