Deerfield Beach, Fla.—Mapei recently teamed up with the Zombie House Flippers on A&E’s popular home-remodeling show “Zombie House Flipping” to turn an Orlando, Fla., property into a beautiful residence.
Logan Reavis, technical services manager for Mapei, provided technical assistance both off and on-camera. “The show notes called this house ‘3,000 square feet of hell’,” Reavis said. “It was 3,000 square feet of wildly different substrates in different stages of disrepair.”
Reavis said he toured the home and spent time with the Zombie Flippers, Ashlee Casserly and Keith Ori, discussing what they wanted to achieve. He then designed the product recommendation based upon his findings. “There were 10 rooms,” he said. “Some floors had uneven or cracked concrete slabs, new concrete slabs, old concrete slabs and one room featured an old mud bed. A couple rooms were the original terrazzo. The only thing they all had in common was the fact that it was a mess.”
The Zombie House Flippers said they needed to see a return and were worried that the floors alone on this house would eat up the profits and spell their doom.
