DENVER, Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeSphere has partnered with Schluter® Systems to provide its builders with information and savings on the Schluter® Shower System, an integrated family of products that form a fully bonded, watertight assembly for tiled showers, and Ditra floor tile uncoupling underlayment that replaces conventional backer board underlayments.
Schluter Systems joins many top building product manufacturers using HomeSphere to engage with the industry's largest community of U.S. home builders. Because the Schluter Shower System eliminates the need for backer board, builders can complete installation three times faster than traditional shower and floor tile installations. Schluter-KERDI and Schluter-DITRA prevent cracking and provide effective waterproofing, reducing the potential for mold or mildew.
"Waterproofing showers is just as challenging and critical as waterproofing the exterior of a home," said Don Recine, National Builder Account Manager for Schluter Systems. "By partnering with HomeSphere, we'll introduce our trademarked technology to more than 2,000 builders and help them build the most efficient moisture-resistant showers on the market."
HomeSphere provides home builders with access to exclusive rebate opportunities and product offerings. Beyond rebates, HomeSphere delivers targeted builder business development strategies to the industry's best building product manufacturers.
"Schluter Systems is a natural fit for HomeSphere's builders, offering high-performing products that help them save on production time and labor costs," said HomeSphere Vice President of Business Development Chris Toth. "We look forward to a lasting partnership and ongoing collaboration with Schluter Systems."
HomeSphere is the construction industry's only direct channel to the largest community of home builders in the United States. Builders use HomeSphere's tools and services to discover the right products and materials for the homes they build, earn incentives on over 1,500 building products from foundation to finish, and develop long-lasting relationships with building product manufacturers. HomeSphere's 2,000+ builder members constructed and closed 15 percent of all homes built last year.
