New adhesive takes muss, fuss out of installing tile

Updated kitchens and baths are key selling points for homes, and tiling countertops, backsplashes and tub and shower surrounds can add instant style and resale value to your abode.

Many do-it-yourselfers hesitate to take on tiling projects because the process is messy and the technical demands of traditional tile adhesives can be intimidating to even the seasoned DIYer. Fortunately, the latest tile adhesive can take much of the muss, fuss, stress and cost out of tiling.

Tiles can be installed in three easy steps: (1) Peel off the liner; (2) stick tile in place; and (3) apply grout the same day.

You can forget about the messy and daunting process of mixing and applying traditional tile adhesives. A process that used to consume a whole weekend can now be completed in just one day.
