Allure Ultra Tiles

When you mention Polyblend is acceptable to use with Allure Ultra tile. In some responses you mention Polyblend caulk and in other responses you mention Polyblend grout. What should I use to fill the 1/4" gap around  door frames as to not void my lieftime limited warranty?

Generally speaking a change in materials would be a place to use caulk because it is flexible; vinyl and wood are going to respond differently to changes in temperature and humidity.

Next time think about undercutting the door jamb/trim so that the tile slips underneath, eliminating the need to use anything.

Polyblend caulk and grout are separate items that should only go in their respective areas. 

The caulk should go where surfaces meet, like the door frame and base moulding where it meets the tiles. The grout itself should only go between the tiles themselves.

This will give you the best results for your floor if applied properly. Always remember to use anything sanded if the joints are larger than 1/8", which is the case for your gap around the door frames.

Let us know if you have any further questions,
