The National Tile Contractors Association’s (NTCA) “Trowel and Error” video is now available in Spanish on the association's YouTube channel.

“We updated and modernized this video last year,” said Bart Bettiga, NTCA's executive director. “Now, because it is such an important training mechanism, Custom Building Products has sponsored a Spanish version as well. NTCA encourages distributors and retailers who sell to markets with Hispanic speaking customers to use this video link to promote this important educational video.”

In the video, NTCA emphasizes the proper use and application of mortar to meet minimum coverage requirements and ensure long-term adhesion and stability of tile to substrate and it clearly demonstrates how common improper techniques such as swirled mortar and spot bonding can reduce coverage.
