Where to Buy TruColor by Bostik

I bought my Schluter Curb and pan from The folks over at www homefashionsonline com, This was the only Web location that offered them as individual items that I could find.

when I asked about joint movement and cracking grout (i.e. Schluter-DILEX), the customer service rep Anna Walter, had one of their installers call me to discuss the issue.

They told me they have and have had great success with the Bostik TruColor urethane grout.

We discussed it for some time and I then checked here and other online locations to learn more.

I have come to the conclusion that this would be exactly what I want.

TruColor is not a product Home Fashion Online offers on their website.
The gentlemen that called me from there did offer to work with me and have some shipped from their distributor.

In an attempt to avoided shipping charges on my small order (1 job) I thought to see if there was a retailer in the Atlanta Metro area.

Not available at Lowes, Home Depot, Floor and Decor Outlet, and others.
I will be making more calls tomorrow.

My question is does anyone have / know of a source for this product
preferable in Atl Metro area?

www wmbird com is the distributor in Atl Metro for Bostik but does not sell to consumers.

Found it

My first impresion of the W M Bird distributor was they would not sell to consumers, i.e. to Contractors only.

After calling them I learn they will sell supplies to the consumer and what I want is considered a supply item by them.

WM Pro Shop is the retail / contractor supply house in the Metro Atl Area.

I learn they also stock Schulter products so I should be able to get the Inside corners I came up short on.

Who would have thought I would be so far off...

I originaly orderd 12 from Ebay
Turns out I need 26 now that I added 2 Nithces. 8 each ..

Roughly $17,000 in this project.
My part is the electric and tile.
And Oh Ya ! the 17 grand.

Mark, visitors can post images from their computer any time at all.

It's only links that are restricted at first.

And we much prefer the photos be posted using the Manage Attachments feature.
