This Month's Topic:
"Causes and Preventions of Ceramic Tile and Stone Failures"

The next CTDA webinar is scheduled for Friday, September 25th at 10 a.m. CENTRAL. Leading this month’s webinar is Donato Pompo, Ceramic Tile and Stone Consultants.

Webinar Participnts Will Learn
Ceramic Tile and Stone Failures are preventable. Tile should last and perform well for years and years, which is one of the benefits of using tile. It hurts the whole industry when there is a failure regardless of who is at fault. When there is a failure, it doesn't matter whose fault it is, everyone pays one way or the other in either dollars, time, or reputation. Add value to your business and minimize your liability by helping your clients make sure their tiles are installed correctly and are suitable for the intended use.

Ceramic Tile and Stone Expert Donato Pompo will review the common causes of ceramic tile and natural stone tile failures. He will then review the appropriate standards and methods that should be utilized by installers and specified by architects within CSI Masterformat tile specification sections 09 30 13 for ceramic tile and 09 30 33 for stone tile under the Quality Assurance and Quality Control sections.
