At A&S Homes, we take every precaution against cracked tiles, this is why we install the Schluter-DITRA and offer a lifetime warranty on tiles in our new houses.
The Schluter-DITRA is an underlayment that sits between your tiles and substrate. It protects the assembly of your home’s ceramic and stone tiles by performing three integral actions:
- Acts as an uncoupling layer that shifts with your home.
- Prevents moisture penetration that may weaken your home’s substrate and tiles.
- Supports heavy weight that preserves the lifespan of your home’s tiles.
If you've ever wonder why century-old buildings still have intact tiles, your answer is the uncoupling method. Schluter-Systems’ video below details the history of uncoupling and only reinforces why A&S Homes home builders chooses the Schluter-DITRA to install ceramic and stone tiles.
