The pricing for color sealing would be based upon the your cost .. I price based upon the labor cost , material & supply costs for the job. Then add my profit margin onto the job to cover my overhead expenses and my profits.
The colorseal can be applied to non- sanded grout BUT it will need to cure longer before you wipe off the excess. If the grout lines are not recessed the colorseal will be a challenge. The customer needs to be told that grout lines that are flush with the surface the colorseal may wear off.
I would only use Grout Perfect products.
I would probably do a light acid cleaning on the grout to open some of the pores within the grout prior to color sealing. Seeing this is a granite floor you need not worry about any etching from the acid cleaning. Be sure to neutralize the grout line prior to applying the sealer

Pricing out a 10,000 sq ft granite and marble mix refinishing job, but they want the grout recolored also.
I know my pricing for the refinishing but my question is what is the going rate for grout recoloring mixed in with a job like this.
