Remodelers' Choice The following product received the most reader inquiries from the December issue of Qualified Remodeler: WARMUP Now available in North America, the Peel-and-Stick version of the Warmup DCM-PRO Membrane floor heating system adheres directly onto plywood and concrete subfloors without the use of thinset. Combined with the DCM-PRO cable, the membrane system is UL-approved and has been successfully tested to ANSI 118.12 anti- fracture standards and ASTM C-627. The floor heating system's design allows higher heating outputs and more adhesive-to-cable contact, resulting in faster and more even heat distribution in addition to protec- tion from installation damage. Because of the polyethylene adhesive on the Peel-and-Stick system, installation entails cutting the membrane to size, peeling back the pro- tective film, pressing the membrane directly onto the subfloor and fitting the cable. There is no wait time needed after the system's installation, and it can be covered with self-leveling mortars for use with small for- mat tiles and other floor types, such as glue-down wood and LVTs. For more information, visit warmup.com/underfloor-heating/ electric/uncoupling-system or circle 50 on inquiry card. The following product received the most pageviews in the past month on QualifiedRemodeler.com: JAMES HARDIE The HardieBacker 500 Waterproof Cement Board helps protect tile installations and wall cavities from moisture penetration. This addition to James Hardie's backer board portfolio emphasizes ease of use, as extra time does not need to be spent applying a waterproof coating across the entire surface area of the wall project. Instead, simply waterproof joints and fasteners then move on; do check local building code requirements to confirm whether some application areas, such as shower pans, require additional waterproofing. To ensure the waterproof cement back board is not compromising on quality or results, the HardieBacker 500 Waterproof Cement Board has passed ANSI 118.10 for waterproofness, making it the first of its kind. In addition to the waterproof composition throughout the board, the backer board provides excellent tile adhesion. James Hardie's HardiBacker 500 Waterproof Cement Board will be avail- able soon and is rolling out in certain markets in Q2 2019.
