The 7 Deadly Sins of Waterproofing

  • HSW/LU
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

This briskly-paced presentation will touch on some of the most common (and frequent) reasons why waterproofing for ceramic tile and stone can go wrong, as well as offering practical "real life" solutions to make sure you do not fall victim to one or more of the "7" deadly sins.  

It’s Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be

  • HSW/LU
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

Style, trends, and textures of ceramic and stone tile come and go.  This course describes materials and methods that help ensure beautiful installations remain safe, intact, and free of cracks and other failures.  

Going Linear

  • HSW/LU
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

A step-by-step approach to the growing trend in design:  Linear Drains!  Technical advancements have allowed manufacturers to produce larger dimensional tiles for installation, but the use of those tiles with a typical drain requires relief cuts taking away from the design intent.  There are many choices, but not all drains are created equal. 

Why Did the Waterproofing Fail? And, How to Make Sure it Does Not Happen to You.

  • HSW/LU
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

Whether you are a tile contractor, remodeling a residential bathroom, or an architect specifying the waterproofing for a large commercial project, the failure of the waterproofing system in your project can lead to disaster.  Unfortunately, in spite of everyone's best intentions, these failures still occur.  In this presentation, we will explore the factors that contribute to waterproofing failures and identify the steps you can take to ensure your waterproofing installation succeeds.
