Laticrete MVIS System donated for “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”

BETHANY, CT — Laticrete, a global leader in the manufacturing of innovative systems for the installation of tile and stone, donated the Laticrete ® MVIS™ system of products to help out a family from Wellman, TX, for a special episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” The popular reality show, now in its seventh season, featured special guests such as Emma Brown from Harry Potter, NASCAR star Carl Edwards and Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber — all in an effort to draw attention to the dangers of texting while driving. The episode focused on Johnnie Mac and Jeanne Brown, who tragically lost their daughter, while the 17-year-old high school senior was texting with friends on her short drive to school.

Palm Harbor Homes in Fort Worth, TX, a leading manufacturer of custom modular homes, worked with the Daltile Forth Worth Stone Center and Laticrete, deciding to specify a random, drystack pattern of Daltile engineered thin-stone tiles for the exterior veneer of the front of the home, along with three other sections on the property to continue the design theme. Laticrete also donated all of the necessary materials for the direct adhered masonry veneer exterior facade installation for the Brown family’s new Hacienda-style home from Palm Harbor.
