Quick and easy sealant system now available at Tile Choice
The complete range of products from the award-winning, sealant-taming CornerTape brand is now available from all 14 branches of Tile Choice throughout the Midlands.
CornerTape guarantees quick and easy removal and application as well as a finishing touch of perfection to sealants in kitchens and bathrooms, and perfectly complements the retailer's huge selection of ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles, grouts, adhesives, tools and accessories.
Suitable for use on baths, basins, showers, tiles, worktops and other surfaces, the system offers both trade and DIY customers of Tile Choice with a choice of silicone remover tools and a brush to quickly and easily remove old sealants; specialist preparation wipes for thorough degreasing to ensure absolute adhesion of new sealant; a Silicone Forming Kit; sealant gun and the unique CornerTape itself - in two roll lengths and four different sizes to every sealant job.
Also now available from Tile Choice is the recently-launched SiliconeKit, which bundles together a range of CornerTape products as a complete toolbox for the removal, preparation and replacement of silicone joints - and the latest addition to the range, CornerTape SiliconePro - the kitchen and bathroom sealant with what is claimed to be the world's first Anti-Drip Valve and Pre-Cut Nozzle System. This is designed for easy use, to prevent waste and save mess... a quarter turn of the Anti-Drip Valve cuts the flow of sealant and the Pre-Cut Nozzle System comes in four sections for different bead sizes, each of which unscrews and is pre-cut at 45 degrees for greater control.
Joints made using CornerTape products are more hygienic and will last twice as long.
Established in 1991, Tile Choice is one of the fastest growing independent tile retailers in the UK. Easily identified with its distinctive yellow and green signage, Tile Choice now boasts 14 individually designed stores throughout the Midlands - in Bilston, Cannock, Walsall, West Bromwich, Perry Bar, Bromford Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Kidderminster, Shrewsbury and Burton on Trent as well as Gloucester, Cheltenham and Northampton.
"We are delighted to have introduced CornerTape products in to our stores," explains Gavin Maiden, director of Tile Choice. "It's a great range and is ideal for us, as with new tiles comes the task of sealing or resealing around baths, basins, showers and worktops - something that is often forgotten or dreaded because of the mess and precision needed.
"But anyone can do it with CornerTape, which completely eliminates the need for any skill with a sealant gun, makes far less mess than traditional methods and produces superb joints with no ridges, bumps or edges - just a first class finish every time."
With huge stocks of stylish ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles along with a hard-earned and enviable reputation for quality and diversity in its product range, Tile Choice prides itself on selling the highest quality products sourced from some of the world's leading manufacturers. The retailer 'buy's big so its customers pay less' and is proud of delivering the highest levels of customer service with fully trained staff, tile samples, tips and advice and tiler recommendations in the area around each store.
All 14 Tile Choice stores are open seven days a week, from 8am to 6pm on weekdays, 8am to 5:30pm on Saturdays and 10am to 4pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
