This seminar will address the distinctive challenges of dissimilar substrates such as engineered wood, radiant heated floors and concrete slabs. Both traditional methods and new technology methods of installation will be discussed and, when applicable, related to the details in the current TCA Handbook. We will look at modern trim profiles and how they improve the integrity and versatility of tile installations in various applications. Lastly, controversial issues such as mold and questionable shower assemblies will be examined.
Comprehend the challenges associated with tile and stone installations by reviewing historical methods and current industry standards.
