How many hours should you wait before applying the grout after you have installed the tile using a thinset compound? And how long after grouting should you wait for it to cure before walking on the tile? As well, how long of a wait before sealing and how long of a wait for the sealant to dry. Many thanks for your help on what I realize are fairly basic questions!!

Directions will be printed on the thinset bags and grout containers as to drying times. Also, the sealers will will have cure times for the grout before applying it. As a rule of thumb, I allow a overnight dry on the thinset and a overnight dry on the grout.

The best advice I can give is TO FOLLOW THE MFGS RECONNENDATIONS . They know what they are doing.
