The International Surfaces Event (TISE) makes its inaugural debut in Miami this week as TISE East opens it’s exhibit doors for the very first time today.
TISE combines three world-class trade shows creating the ultimate event essential to flooring, stone and tile professionals by combining Surfaces, Stone Expo / Marmomacc Americas and Tile Expo. These top flooring industry shows have successfully combined to create the ultimate Surfaces Event and have historically been held in Las Vegas, but now The International Surfaces Event brings the industry’s biggest show to the southeast for a second annual show.
TISE East takes place at the Miami Convention Center (Hall C & D) with education sessions beginning October 19th and exhibits from October 20th – 22nd. Attracting installers, architects, designers, builders, contractors, restoration pros, distributors and retailers the show offers plenty of not-to-miss information. There are 4-days of the newest products, hands-on demos and inspiring trends presented by key manufacturers and industry suppliers. Not to mention excellent networking and education opportunities.
Be sure to visit Duradek at booth #2520. If you have any involvement in exterior pedestrian surfaces, particularly decks over habitable space, this could be the most important stop you make at the show. Duradek president John Ogilvie and Duradek Sales Manager Kevin MacMillan are both incredibly knowledgeable in the area of deck and roof deck waterproofing and can answer all of the questions you have on this specialty trade.
Duradek Educates on the Live Demo Stage
You can find the experts of Duradek at the Live Demo Stage at TISE East today, Monday, Oct 20th at 3:30 p.m. presenting a demo titled “Exterior Flooring Options for Patios, Decks and Flat Roofs – How and Why it Works”.
This demo with highlight the advantages of membrane waterproof surfaces and the different options of waterproof deck and roof deck membranes like the Duradek walkable vinyl membrane that provides both the waterproofing and the walking surface in one single-ply application. However for exterior tile deck or roof deck surfaces, the waterproofing factor is often overlooked but it is critical for contractors or tile layers to have a reliable waterproofing membrane to ensure the most reliable results for exterior tile projects.
Duradek Tiledek is the most effective solution for waterproofing under exterior tile projects and is ICC approved for use as a roofing membrane. Manufactured with a textured surface for best adhesion of thin-set mortar for outdoor tile projects like tile decks and tile roof decks, Tiledek has proven to be a successful and reliable method of resolving trouble tile decks after many other unsuccessful methods failed.
Tiledek is a popular choice for celebrity builders who need a reliable method of waterproofing under tile and pavers. Check out this Case History #136 from a project on HGTVs Builder Boss where Tiledek was used to waterproof a deck over subterranean living space and this article about an HGTV Income Property episode where Scott McGillvray used Tiledek to save their project from a relentless water infiltration issue from an improperly waterproofed porch.
