Today’s tile requires specific underlayments and mortars to create a durable installation. We list products by their ANSI designation so they can be specified to fit the exact needs of each project. 

CUSTOM has a complete listing of all TCNA-endorsed methods for installing ceramic and natural stone along with CAD drawings showing the recommended products for each detail. 

We also offer a comprehensive CSI formatted 3-part specification for general tile, floor preparation, moisture vapor control and swimming pool installations. 

An even easier way to write a specification is to follow the link on the page to the ARCAT Spec Wizard and follow the simple steps to produce a CSI formatted specification.

For selecting grout color, the CUSTOM website includes an easy to use tool to speed matching your tile.
