Laticrete PTK Educational Programs

I received an email:
Just a note to let you know that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. I recently attended the 2 day workshop at the plant in Hamlet, and I was really impressed with the presentations and the people who gave them. Once again, Laticrete has proved to me that they truly are the industry leader in tile and stone setting technology.  I am not surprised. Just impressed. I learned a lot.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with gravy and gratitude.

Cold Weather & Tile and Stone Installations

Cold Weather Tiling and Grouting

Conventional Portland cement tile & stone mortar beds, thin-set mortars, grouts and cement plasters are often permanently damaged when subject to below freezing temperatures immediately after installation.

The water content of a freshly installed mortar turning into ice often results in the Portland cement gel structure rupturing with significant loss in strength, flexibility and durability. Subsequent repairs to the damaged work and resulting site delays are extremely costly.

Tile Guy Goes Fishing

Went fishing down to Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco, MX) last weekend with brother John. The beer was cold, the weather was perfect and the fishing was good. I have attached a couple of pictures of a 155 lb. black sea bass we caught. Enjoy!
