Went to the closest shop that carried it....they were asking $42 ish per bag :crap: Seems awfully high.....

Might just go to local Dal and buy Mapei

The retail price for a bag of grey is $52. I would have to pay about $35 as a wholesale contractor...

Hello Chef,
Some of the exceptional mortars do command an exceptional price. I don't think you are being gouged by your supplier.

Wow. Didn't know good materials was this much.
I recall using the Mapei stuff awhile back but it may have not been comparable to the the Lat 254.

thanks guys.

Chef,
Wait till you start looking at the price of sealers. :eek: The good stuff sometimes runs over $200 per gallon!!!!

Well..I believe in doing it right the 1st time around....I keep on making excuses for tools ;-)



I won't be needing sealers when using spectralock ?
It's kitchen backsplash and from the looks of it....there will be times where oil will splash, etc on it. I'm not talking cups just just the usual overspray ....from the pans and such....

Hell, even cleaving a whole chicken get's a lil grimey.
