How TileWare Values Homeowners & Property Owners

Each TileWare accessory is assembled as a "Complete Kit", which contains a high-quality plated metal accessory, manufactured from either stainless steel or solid brass, coupled with, a solid stainless steel PermaTile™ Anchor that mounts behind the tile in thinset adhesive. The kit also contains other decorative trim components and screws required for installation.

On each landing page we provide a precise picture of the entire kit. We call this to your attention because TileWare is the only brand that combines a waterproof tile anchor with each accessory kit. We classify our products as a middle market price point, important to know, our anchors in each kit represent between 33-42% of the kitted accessory cost at retail. So, when comparing TileWare with other brands, please remember that our retail price includes a superior tile anchoring technology that is waterproof, strong and offers (exclusive) minimal design features.

Tile showers are very important consumer utilities. Homeowners love tile because it can transform any space into a personal spa-like environment. Additionally, tile surfaces offer an ease-of-use feature, making them practical, easy to clean utilities that will generally perform for decades. However, if homeowners want other accessories like; shower doors, grab bars, shelving, hooks, towel bars, and seating they would need to go outside the tile industry and purchase plumbing products. The problem with plumbing accessories is they mount with screws and anchors that penetrate the interior wall cavity, and are notorious failures which void waterproofing warranties.

Today's homeowners want a shower space that is personal and beautiful, but more importantly one that addresses all the nuances of lifestyle and waterproofing together.
