Water Wicking in Kerdi Shower Flood Test - Ohio

Anyone know who the Sales Rep is for Ohio for Schluter Systems? This fellow named Terry was told it would be a two week wait I think before anyone comes to look at it.

Send me a message or visit the discussion here if you know who it might be. Thanks.

So I checked Facebook today to find that Schluter has in fact set up a meeting with this fellow in Ohio. It might be as speedy as the guy would like but getting someone to your home is key.

This is the reason I'm working with Schluter here in Vancouver. Support at a local level. Before planning your bathroom renovation find out what manufactures have local support.

Is it Laticrete.

Noble Company.

Wedi.

Custom.

Ardex.

If you have no local support - what are you going to do if something goes wrong with your flood test? I'll follow this discussion closely and see how the repair goes.

I started a Kerdi Shower Inspection Check-List which might help a lot of people avoid some common problems....

So after a RE-DO this fellow in Ohio is back on track and passed his second flood test. All the updated info at the link above.

A classic story as to why you need to flood test every shower - every time!

Dumb question: How do I find out if any of those companies have local support? I sort of suspect none of them do as I'm in what is called a "No Man's Land" when it comes to services.
