New DIY App Instills Confidence in Tile Installations
March 20, 2012

image of the TEC mobile web app home screenAURORA, Ill., US, H.B. Fuller (NYSE:FUL), a leading global adhesives provider, announced today that DIY enthusiasts now have a new online tool to support the successful installation of tile and stone in the US. The TEC™ product selector, a new web-based and mobile app, allows homeowners to quickly receive product suggestions for TEC tile setting materials to get their project off to the right start. This one-of-a kind tool allows the homeowner to input details about their tile project, and the app generates a customized shopping list containing the TEC tile setting products needed for the unique project, helpful installation tips and a listing of other tools that may be needed to complete the installation. Compatible with most mobile devices or PC's, the TEC product selector starts by asking the user basic questions about their tile project. The DIYer simply enters the requested information about the job, such as what they plan to tile, what surface material they are working with, the dimensions of the space, the type of tile they are using and the desired grout width.

Based on that information, the TEC product selector immediately provides a detailed shopping list with suggested TEC brand tile setting materials required for the job, as well as a list of helpful tools and tips to support a quality tile installation. The user can then take that list to their local Lowe's® home improvement store, and dive right into their DIY tile installation.

"We developed the TEC product selector to take the intimidation factor out of tile setting and help homeowners approach their DIY projects with more confidence and ease," said Lauren Fontela, Senior Market Manager for the retail channel. "Many people are unsure where to start when it comes to tiling, but having a tailored list of suggested products and quantities required, as well as recommended tools, for their specific job helps pave the way to completing their installation."
