First time tiler and user if this product. The results are very high quality because of this product. Although this product does not elimate the need for solid sub floors, good surface preparation and proper planning, by eliminating lippage it does go a long way in making the job look whole lot more professional than I could have accomplished without it! Great idea and a quality product. It costs a bit but I like that it is made in the USA right down to the bucket it comes in. [...]
