Tile installations are usually prone to moisture issues. At Moritz Masonry & Tile Supply, we provide solutions to common tile installation challenges. These include waterproofing and uncoupling membranes. While ceramic and stone tiles are beautiful, sustainable and practical, they are not waterproof or resistant to breaking and cracking. As a dealer of Schluter®-Systems, we provide waterproofing membranes in Medicine Hat. Schluter®-DITRA is installed beneath tiled floors, and its innovative uncoupling technology is designed to prevent cracked tile and grout. Schluter®-KERDI is a sheet-applied waterproofing and vapor-retardant membrane that is installed in wet areas such as bathtub surrounds, behind the tiles in showers and more. The Schluter® membrane range is ideal for:
Schluter®-KERDI and KERDI-DS waterproofing membranes provide protection from moisture behind shower walls and other tiled elements. KERDI and KERDI-DS are known for their limited crack-bridging capabilities. They are sheet-applied bonded waterproof membranes that are pliable.
Tile installations can face challenges of differential movement stresses. While tiles have been installed successfully by using an uncoupling layer, it is important to choose the latest in the market. Schluter®-DITRA membranes provide uncoupling through free space which allows for in-plane movement. This eliminates the major cause of cracking and delaminating of the tiled surface.
The Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT-DUO uncoupling and waterproofing membrane is ideal for multi-storey constructions. It features an integrated bonding fleece that helps reduce impact sound transmission through floor-ceiling assemblies. The membrane can also be customized with DITRA-HEAT-E-HK floor heating cables to create a luxurious-looking and warm tile flooring.
An electric floor warming system can bring a touch of luxury into a room when combined with the beauty and durability of stone, tile, or resilient floor coverings. With the option to place heat cables wherever desired, DITRA-HEAT can be your ideal solution for customized heating zones. A unique and proven technology of uncoupling membranes incorporated in the design makes DITRA-HEAT an electric floor warming system that can ensure your floors are not subjected to cracked tiles and grout. Our systems can bring comfort and floor warming to any tiled floor, and as there’s no requirement for levelling compounds, they also make for a quick and easy installation.
