Hi Henry and Kevin,

I am waiting for the wall and floor tile to arrive for a condo job here in Maui. But I did have the shower floor tile and my boys helped me grout it this Saturday afternoon.

Storefront Entry


Click on photos to enlarge

I was on a mall storefront ( PS Aeropostale ) job that need serious prep work, being away from home, I ran to the local Dal Tile store and grabbed some Laticrete 816 to flash patch. Used HydroBan for the area as an AntiFracture membrane.
Finished off with SpectraLock as grout.

The Power Of The Pump


Gentlemen,

See below for a compliment we received from one of our customers.  This is a new customer, one that has never seen the Laticrete Supercap Pump truck system before.  Needless to say, they were impressed.  We knocked out a 40,000 square foot renovation project for them in less than four days, including a full shot blast.  The power of the pump never gets old.

The feedback never changes, always amazement.   I also want to add that the plant has got the Supercap product dialed in and the quality is first rate.  It is the best self leveling product in the world.  We recently completed 25 floors in the Freedom Tower.  We used all small bags of Supercap, NO pump truck, installed over polished concrete.  We DID NOT shotblast, we used a slurry coat over the original Supercap primer…………..product is down solid, hard as a rock, not one crack.  Stephen can elaborate more and the very positive feed back he received from the Port Authority of NY/NJ.

Regards, Brian

Summit of Jbel Toubkal

Click on photo to enlarge

I decided to climb to the summit of Jbel Toubkal because my family happened to be taking a trip to the area, and when I found out the tallest mountain in Morocco was nearby, I knew I had to climb it.  I would definitely describe myself as an avid outdoorsmen and mountain climbing is currently how I have been pursuing that addiction; there is something liberating and overwhelming about conquering mountains and striving to embrace the top of the world!  The reason I have become interested in mountaineering and other such outdoor adventures is definitely because of my uncle David Rothberg.  Growing up listening to his wondrous stories about his times spent on distant treacherous peaks and lost in the wilderness on NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) created in me an insatiable thirst to follow in his footsteps!
The LATICRETE shirt carried to the summit of Toubkal was in homage of how my uncle used to do the same on his climbs, as well as to bring glory and honor to the family and company my grandparents created and uncles have grown.  
I am a Physics Major at University - I just officially declared it two days ago!  As to working for Laticrete, I am not sure where the winds will take me, but I definitely would love to work for Laticrete at some point in the future!

Mosaics

Livermore VA Mosaic
Henry,

Finally; we've installed the first 9 feet, 31 feet to go! We did the install yesterday, we couldn't have done it without the help of Jeff Carder and Dale Foster. I've included a couple of pictures that you're more than welcome to post on Facebook. I should be getting a picture later of Jeff and Dale in front of the mosaic (another volunteer took it so I've asked her to send it to me), I'll send that off as soon as I receive it.
Jeff has been a great resource with his knowledge, I'm a rookie at this so there is no way we could have had the success on the install without him.
We've received many compliments already, the veterans and staff are very excited now that we have the first section completed!

Once again thank for everything
Dave Wetherell
