About

To give you a quick background, possibly one of the most dreaded renovation projects is removing old flooring and prepping the subfloor. Thinset is the mortar that bonds tile to the floor. Once it's set it's tough to get out. Traditional methods of removing thinset are slow, inefficient, expensive and messy. We have developed an option that is both inexpensive and versatile. 

Comprised of a general contractor and mechanical engineer, Thinset Removal LLC is dedicated to providing high-quality, long lasting flooring prep products perfect for the at home handyman or experienced professional.Thinset Removal LLC is going to take the flooring prep world by storm! We have developed a unique 2 inch wide pneumatic chisel bit that is perfect for removing stubborn thinset. Comprised of a unique impact resistant alloy, hardened for longevity and sharpened to catch even the most stubborn thinset, our products make quick work of even the most difficult projects. Check out our project video for a demo.  

Since we formed our company this past April, we have hit many milestones: website development, designed 2 inch wide Thinset Removal Bit, found a reliable manufacturer, ordered a sample, fully tested the sample, designed packaging, located an air hammer manufacturer, designed a customized air hammer, designed packaging for the air hammer, registered and got an approved trademark, ordered 600 2 inch wide Thinet Removal Bits and 300 air hammers, got our tool into a local hardware store.

Our goal is to get our products in every major hardware store by the end of 2015 and THAT is where we could really use your HELP! Marketing is expensive and we believe that if we can raise $10k that should be enough to "Kick start" us in the right direction and land us in at least one major retailer. From there we will leverage our revenue and use it to push us into more retail stores. 

We've set an aggressive schedule and aimed for some very high goals. We have a plan and are working towards it everyday. Your generous donations are crucial for our timely success. Thank you for supporting our dream!

Risks and challenges

Since we passed the design, development and test phase, we have already mitigated a lot of risks.

Our biggest risk is running out of funding and not being able to market our products properly; including professional videos, flyers, demonstrations, attending hardware conferences, travel to meet with potential customers etc. Our product has already been accepted into a small hardware store so that has reinforced the fact that we have a good product and it does address a real need.

We hope that $10k will be enough to get push us through the doors of at least one major retailer. If we get one, we'll eventually get them all.
