>From the pictures the floor appears to be set as a butt joint, meaning the
stone are butted together with little or no grout line. This is not an
uncommon way of setting stone by a skill setter. The problem now is the
stone has chipped away and holes opened. I would consider using a
traver-fill and filling the holes and the grout line with this product. You
could use grout and add a latex additive to the grout when mixing in place
of water. I would use a ratio of 60 to 70 % latex and the balance water in
the grout mixture. Just remember the latex will shorten the pot life of the
grout. The latex will help the grout to better attach to the stone and will
give a harder finished product then just using grout with no latex.
