This is the best system out there for leveling tiles. The flat tab on the base of the strap is thin as compares to others which means less adhesive is needed. The straps is only 1/32" making this system easy to use whether you are trying to achieve a thin grout joint or use additional spacers for a larger grout joint.
When install tile this is all I use . My customers are always pleased. It is a little pricey but the amount of time I am saving easily covers the amount of money I am spending using this system (not to mention the amount of grief of pulling up tile because they are not level). My work always looks great with absolutley no complaints. I know at the end of job I'm gonna get paid and my customer will be satisfied. Never had problems with this system.
I have used this system many times in the past laying various types of tiles and at this point it has become a necessity. I am getting so much work laying these plank tiles I can't see any other way than using a anti lippage system. Thank you Contractors Direct for supplying me with great products and thank you to Pearl for great blades and the Tuscan floor leveling system can't see any other way to lay tile and keep a full head of hair.
