When we asked Tile Solutions owner Jayme Smith what he loves about ARDEX UI 740™ FLEXBONE® Uncoupling Membrane, here’s what he had to say. Jayme recently used FLEXBONE in a beautiful home on Lake Sacandaga, New York.
“My favorite feature is how easy the product fills in compared to its competitors. Couple that with using ARDEX X 77™ MICROTEC® Fiber Reinforced Tile and Stone Mortar [ my go to favorite] it’s a win-win. Of course I recommend this to other installers, as its a premium quality product like many other ARDEX products I’ve used.”
Coastal Custom Tile Owner Jacob Harris and his team recently tried ARDEX UI 740 FLEXBONE in four bathrooms and a laundry room. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Our business is in Outer Banks, North Carolina where very tall homes are common. One of the greatest benefits to using ARDEX UI 740 FLEXBONE is that helps alleviate some of the weight we are putting on 3rd and 4th levels in these homes. We used ARDEX UI 740™ FLEXBONE® Uncoupling Membrane along with the ARDEX AF 207™ Pre-Mixed, Rapid Set Uncoupling Membrane Bonding Adhesive on the floors on a recent residential installation and the products were amazing to work with. ARDEX UI 740 FLEXBONE goes down nicely and is easy to cut and ARDEX AF 207™ offers the ability to adjust the ARDEX UI 740 FLEXBONE with no worry that it will adhere or re-adhere to the subfloor. We have started using this product in many of our residential projects and will continue to do so.”
Today Jake and Cheyanne Watts, co-owner’s of Stellar Contractors in Portland, Oregon, share a sweet Carrara marble tile installation laid over none other than ARDEX UI 740 FLEXBONE.
“ARDEX UI 740™ FLEXBONE® Uncoupling Membrane is easy to work with, easy to lay flat and easy to backfill. The combination of the ARDEX UI 740™ FLEXBONE® and ARDEX AF 207™ makes for a quick painless install that is tileable immediately. It’s also nice to use a complete ARDEX system with a full warranty!I would recommend it to any installer and will use it on all future jobs where it’s applicable.”
