Wedi Shower System Demonstration – You’re Invited!

Wedi Installation Shower Waterproofing Seminar

Berkshires tile contractor Tim Levasseur hosts Wedi shower waterproofing seminar at Albany Tile, Carpet & Rug.

On Thursday, June 6th Albany Tile, Carpet & Rug will be hosting a Wedi Shower System Demonstration in our showroom from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm.   Tim Levasseur, a Berkshires tile contractor and our Wedi installation expert, will be on hand to assemble a complete shower system from start to finish.  Wedi shower systems are WATERPROOF – not just water resistant.  Wedi replaces the mud pan and liner process, expedites construction and installation, and creates a tile-ready surface in just 2-3 hours (rather than 2-3 days.)  Tim will also be available to answer any questions about the complete Wedi line including building panels, prefabricated niches, and drains.  We hope to see you there!

Ditra-Heat Goes Public

As we post this, it is 0°F in the Capital District, no better time for Schulter to permit sales of its much anticipated Ditra-Heat. When you install this electric floor warming system, you will be able to realize all the benefits of Ditra — crack prevention, waterproofing, and vapor management — and keep your porcelain or stone tile floor warm.  And you will like the fact that the whole Ditra-Heat system only raises your warmed floor’s height 1/4″.  As such, you will only have to deal with an insignificant height transition from the adjoining, non-heated floor to your comfortably warm tile floor.  Want more information?  Read this: DitraHeat-DataSheet
