75 lb Linoleum Roller

If you are installing a large amount of linoleum or vinyl tile, the 75 lb Linoleum Roller is a must.  Most linoleum or vinyl tile installations leave behind some air bubbles.  The 75 lb Linoleum Roller will help squeeze out any air bubbles in the floor covering and completely flatten it out.

The 75 lb roller should be used just after laying the floor, before the floor covering has bonded with the adhesive you used to attach it to the floor.  In addition, you should always start rolling from the center out towards the edges of the floor covering. 

The 75 lb Linoleum Roller will exert even pressure on uneven surfaces with steel segmented rollers. The inset axles won't scuff walls, and the roller features a detachable handle and built-in carrying grip. It also has a detachable wheel base for easy transport, and offers upright support and protects steel segmented rollers.

Noble ProBase 32" x 60" Waterproof Shower Tray

The Noble ProBase 32" x 60" off-center shower tray has completely changed the way both contractors and do-it-yourselfers view shower installations.  Noble has eliminated the need to pour your own mortar bed, or even the need to waterproof a shower base with this 32" x 60" off-center tray available on Carpetstretcher.net.

This Noble ProBase shower tray features waterproofing membrane that is pre-applied to the shower tray. This means that no additional waterproofing is required for the tray itself, however, we still recommend that you use additional waterproofing for your shower walls.  In addition, the tray is pre-sloped at 1/4" per foot all the way to the drain.  This makes sure that all of the water will go directly down the shower drain.  As for installation, simply apply thin set to the substrate and embed the ProBase into it.  You can then tile directly to the ProBase.  The tray can be cut to fit any custom size shower as well.
