Your kitchen counter is a work surface that is used daily, and should be truly functional and easy to maintain. Tiled countertops provide the ultimate in durability and practicality, and come at a fraction of the cost of marble, granite, or quartz countertops.
Ideal for the style-savvy, cost-conscious consumer, tiled countertops are resistant to staining, scratching, high heat, and are easy to clean with standard household products. Today’s tiled countertops incorporate beautiful, large-format tiles to practically eliminate grout lines, and with endless tile options, you can complement any kitchen style.
The Schluter®-Countertop System provides a simple way to build your tile countertop, without the need for ceramic tile trim pieces. Specialized profiles and corner pieces produce stunning sink rails, elegant and easy-to-clean countertop backsplash transitions, and practical tiled-under sinks. Under the tile, the Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD substrate is lightweight and dimensionally stable, and provides an ideal support for the tile covering that is simple to install.
Level substrates are created using KERDI-BOARD, a multifunctional waterproof building panel that is ready for tile. KERDI-BOARD is lightweight, even, impact-resistant, and rigid. Because it is easy to cut with a utility knife, you can specify your substrate according to your tile and not the other way around.
Since KERDI-BOARD is waterproof, the only extra step necessary is to seal the seams and wall-to-countertop connections. This is easily accomplished by applying KERDI-BAND to these areas using an unmodified thin-set mortar. The result is a waterproof installation that will not suffer damage in the event of an unexpected water leak.
