Anyone used Protegga (vs Ditra)?

Hi all,

The one tile supplier I've found who will sell me just what I need of Ditra and Kerdi rather than forcing me to buy complete rolls doesn't actually use Ditra. He uses a look-alike product called Protegga, (http://www.bengard.com/Protegga.htm). Says it seems to work just as well. Has anyone here used it?

Jane --

Protegga has been mentioned in the forum. You might try doing a search.

Most of the pros stick with Ditra because they have confidence in Schluter Systems and their warranty. You can order small amouts of Ditra online from Tile Experts. They also offer excellent advice around the clock.

Hi Jane,

And the fellow who runs Tile Experts (where you can buy small lots of Ditra) is a fellow Canuck. That's got to count for something, eh?

You can find David Taylor in our store: Tile Your World Online Store

I'm sure Protegga works. The problem is they have no support whatever. They have copied the design of Ditra, which is easy for anyone to do. What is hard is backing up the product with training and with support (and warranty).

That's cool. I'm not keen on rip-off companies; I just wasn't willing to buy a whole roll just to get the real deal. Buying the small amounts from the Tile Experts will work great. Thanks!

Only company certified to install? Is this something new I missed somewhere?
