Stone Veneer Problem
Jobsite mixed & bagged conventional PC/ Sand mortars usually have good compressive strength but poor or marginal bond strength. They make poor quality bonding mortars for installing thin stone veneers.
A better choice would be a factory prepared, engineered, adhesive mortar. An adhesive mortar as part of a Masonry Veneer Installation System. Something Like Laticrete MVIS mortars !

Linear Drains Detailed
After the drain is installed in place a double layer of HydroBan liquid is applied to provide a seamless watertight installation. The HydroBan liquid waterproofing membrane is applied to the walls and floors of the shower. The HydroBan bonds directly to the metal drain body.
Fast, easy and productive to install.

Laticrete SuperCap Meeting
What is Laticrete-SuperCap ?
The system is a time-saving, cost-effective method of finishing new concrete or capping existing slabs. This proven lean tool provides benefits right from the start of concrete placement in division 3 and flows through to division 9. It's what gives Laticrete SuperCap the confidence to say, "We Own The Floor℠".
The Laticrete Supercap System combines a LEED contributing, GREENGUARD certified, low alkali, self leveling cement-based technology with a computer controlled mobile blending unit - the pump truck.
This revolutionary system benefits the entire project from design to completion by providing predicable results that save time, money, and improve overall quality. We call it .... The Next Generation Slab®.
There’s Nothing Like it in the Industry.
