Home Depot tile clinic well worth the money

Written By: Kathy Price-Robinson - Apr• 13•08

Zac lays out the tile.The title of this post is a joke, of course, because there is no charge for clinics at Home Depot, Lowe’s and other places. It’s just a matter of signing up and showing up.

The clinic I attended today consisted of a talented guy named Zac in aisle No. 7 with a table and some supplies. I expected a production — Lights! Microphone! Chairs! But, no.

Still, it was perfect. With four of us standing around, we got to ask all the questions we wanted. Is that Hardibacker board? (Yes.) How much is it? (About $11 for a 3-by-5-foot piece.) How long does it take the thinset to dry? (About 20 or 30 minutes.) How much is it? (About $10 a quart.) And so on.

The reason I mention all this is that each month Home Depot offers in-store clinics on different topics, and this month includes setting tile. Other topics for April are: selecting and planting perennials, water conservation at home and creating an organic garden.

Check local dates and times.

Any other free clinics you would recommend to others?
