David just finished up speaking in Orlando at Coverings regarding stone restoration and in January also for the 11th year in a row was teaching classes at Surfaces/stone expo. David believes that education is everything. He feels that the clients never get enough education about their investments and thus cause's damage or neglect because of bad or no information.
One of the large problems in the tile industry today is some porcelain tiles. They are becoming very hard to clean and in some tiles, they have some sort of burnished wax or tropical on them. David has contacts all over the U.S. and everybody is having to be extra careful on the selection and testing of porcelain tiles. The biggest problem is that the manufactures are not telling their suppliers about this until it's installed or until proper testing is done. Trust me on this one! This one is not over and there will be much more into when it becomes available (Just because it's stamped with a country's name does not mean that it was really made there).
