LATICRETE recently donated the tile installation products used in the season finale of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – Indianapolis. Hosted by Ty Pennington, the two-hour season finale aired on May 17, 2009, documenting and celebrating a brand new home for Bernard McFarland and his three sons in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood on the city’s blue-collar, near northeast side.
LATICRETE contractor sales representative John Holliday directly supplied the new McFarland home with products from the LATICRETE manufacturing facility in Indianapolis. The new home, built by Estridge Homes, features porcelain tile donated by Daltile in the kitchen, backroom, laundry room and mud room, as well as all bathrooms. In addition, Daltile supplied 24” x 24” large-format porcelain tiles which were spot-bonded as a full-wall fireplace surround with LATAPOXY 310 Rapid Stone Adhesive, quickly applied with the LATAPOXY 310 Cordless Mixer. With only one-week to complete the home, LATAPOXY 310 Rapid Stone Adhesive “sped-up the installation of the fireplace surround and allowed much quicker access for the other trades involved in the Indianapolis episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” LATICRETE notes.
LATICRETE MVP (Most Valued Partner), Tremain Tile, Marble & Granite, family-owned since 1921, provided the crew that installed the tiles throughout the house with the donated LATICRETE products.
