Are you thinking of renovating your bathroom? Bathrooms can provide unique tiling challenges because the substrate needs to be flat, waterproof, and not cause the tile to rest above any adjoining surfaces. Often, during construction or renovation in wet areas, the surface to be tiled is completely unacceptable for tiling. Luckily, Schluter Systems has created Kerdi-Board.
Kerdi-Board is a substrate that can replace materials like fiberboard, green board, and Dura rock on shower walls and bathroom floors. Paired with our tile and mortar solutions, you have a complete, waterproof bathroom solution that is beautiful and functional.
Kerdi-Board is comprised of a lightweight polystyrene foam interior, with fleece webbing on either side to ensure tight bonding to any surface. Additionally, the surface has convenient gridlines for precise tile alignment and cutting. Speaking of cutting, Kerdi-Board can be chopped and shaped easily with a utility knife, no need for big, messy saws.
Kerdi-Board can also be used as a building material to create free-standing structures that will be covered with tile. It is easy to move around and the boards are completely waterproof, temperature resistant, and anti-microbial. Kerdi-board comes in a number of thicknesses, in order to meet your needs for adjoining surfaces. Choose Schluter Kerdi-Board for your next bathroom renovation project.
Schluter has provided innovative stone and ceramic tile installation solutions for over 40 years. What began as a simple tile installation company has since grown to an international firm with over 40 product lines and a reputation unmatched in the industry.
