Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by no slip or sag are the biggest benefits This product is used by mainly professionals that don't want there tiles to sag on the wall regardless of using spacers, some tile like tumbled marble are almost impossible to use spacers, and simplifies the installation of floor tile for a more flush install. It will set up fast on backer boards so you won't have time to readjust tile set 20-30 min earlier. Some won't like it for that reason. Once you learn how to work with it, it is a good product, it has a specific purpose. Mix up small batches until you get used to it. Over 25yrs exp. April 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best and strongest thinset available The thinset works for a variety of applications, tile, travertine and marble on both vertical and horizontal surfaces. The directions make it sound more difficult to use than it is. i found the best experience was to add water and thoroughly mix until it is the consistency of peanut butter. For larger tiles / stones, mix it more loose so that you can work the tiles more easily. For smaller tiles, mix it slightly more firm. Also, I attempted to remove an 18" X 18" tile applied to Durock..., when the tile came up, it ripped up the Durock with it. It has a strong bond, so make sure you get your layout correct. I filled the damaged area with this same mix and it worked out fine. October 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product made my DIY shower project a breeze..... This product was so easy to mix, and worked perfectly with my Marble tile for my DIY shower project. It has a great holding property, and made my project easier and gave me peace of mind that i made the best choice to use. May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great results from this product The material is expensive but it out performs others I have used in the past. I am restoring a slate porch floor and will be installing a compass rose in the center. The work is slow for me but i=so far it looks great. July 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product for under 20 x 20 tiles The mortar is great for keeping the tiles from sinking, especially the heavier ones. I would use a plastic lifter for anything 20 x 20" or larger. The mortar also dries very quickly in drier weather so you will need to make smaller, more frequent batches. December 10, 2014
