Course Description

If you are ready to take your professional expertise to the next level, this advanced course about how to use troubleshooting and inspection to diagnose stone failures is a necessity. According to Fred Hueston, the industry expert who will be providing this highly specialized training, “The amount of failures, poor installations and other issues with stone and tile flooring are on the rise. This workshop is perfect for fabricators, restoration and installation contractors, as well as architects, building engineers and maintenance staff who have to deal with stone and tile installation and restoration.”

Students will learn about the entire life cycle of stone, from geological formation and quarrying and slab production to fabrication and installation, as well as post-installation problems and solutions like repair, restoration, stain removal, and slip resistance. From understanding the structure of different kinds of stone and materials to physical and chemical testing, and much more, students gain a higher understanding of stone as a renewable surface material. Armed with this knowledge, students can gain the confidence to write reports as subject matter experts and offer expert witness testimony.

Many restoration and installation contractors, architects, building engineers, maintenance staff, and other professionals who deal with stone and tile installation and restoration have benefitted from this comprehensive course.

Lots of helpful information

This course packed in a lot of information but it was very, very useful and valuable. After taking this course, I felt confident enough to be able to go out to an inspection job and find the cause of whatever the failure may be. I wish I had the knowledge that I do now with my previous experiences on jobs in South Florida because it would've saved me from a lot of headaches. It was a very fun and pleasant experience to learn from Dr. Fred himself.
