Tile and stone are durable surfaces that are perfect for any space — commercial or residential. Tile and stone are also easy to clean and maintain with the right products, but don’t worry, Koffler Sales has you covered.
Tile and Stone Primer
Before laying tile, you need to prime your surface for application. A good primer, like Mapei Eco Prim Grip Primer, will make your surface even for tile installation as well as improve adhesion (so it lasts). A unique feature of Mapei Eco Prim Grip Primer is that you can lay tile over tile, which will save you money and time when you’re ready for an update.
Mixing grout can be a pain, but there are pre-mixed grouts on the market that can save you time and frustration. Koffler Sales offers Mapei Flexcolor CQ Grout that is ready-to-use and available in several designer colors. This pre-mixed grout remains ready-to-use for up to a year after opening (with proper storage), so it is perfect for property maintenance companies who may have several tile projects throughout the year. Who doesn’t hate waste?
Koffler Tip: For big design on a small budget, consider pairing colorful pre-mixed grout with standard white tile.
