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

  • HSW/SD
  • 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.

Sustainable Tile Installations Using Membrane Technology

  • HSW/SD
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

The course provides an overview of the types of membranes used to waterproof ceramic and stone tile installations and compares them in terms of performance, durability, ease of installation, control of variables, and function. Describes the importance of durability, quality, and performance of membranes relative to Sustainable Design.

Recent Trends in Waterproofing Tile and Stone Installations

  • HSW/SD
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

Participants will learn details and specifications that will help eliminate causes of failures in tile waterproofing applications.

Sound Rated Floors for Tile, Stone, and Hardwood

  • HSW/SD
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

Discuss the different standards of sound rating for the flooring industry and important design criteria critical to achieving the rating that you are attempting to achieve. Understand different methods of achieving those ratings. Learn of the concerns that must be considered in preparing the proper specification for the project.

Preventing Failures in Ceramic and Stone Tile Installations

  • HSW/SD
  • 1.0 Learning Unit

Learn the standards that affect the design of flooring systems. Learn items to be concerned about when creating a specification for flooring underlayments that will protect the system from failing. Learn the major causes of failures to ceramic tile and stone. Learn proper methods of installations and procedures.

Going Linear

  • HSW/SD
  • 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.
