DALLAS, May 11, 2010 – Daltile, the largest U.S. manufacturer and distributor of ceramic tile and natural stone, has signed on for the inaugural season as tile provider to Construction Intervention, an all-new Discovery Channel series. Construction Intervention follows Charlie Frattini, New York Construction Extraordinaire, and his trusted team of contractors and designers as they find businesses who are in danger of failing due to botched, delayed, or impossible construction jobs and rescue them from their construction woes.

“Television product placements are a key element of Daltile’s public relations efforts. Shows like Construction Intervention are great vehicles for showcasing many of our most stylish products, while demonstrating how they can be used to create beautiful rooms,” said Lori Kirk-Rolley, senior marketing director for Daltile. “The feedback we get from our participation is amazing. It’s energized both Daltile’s employees and dealers, as well as our customers.”

During the first season of Construction Intervention, the show’s designers have used a variety of stylish Daltile products, including Timber Glen, P’Zazz, Egyptian Glass, Metal Fusion, Veranda, Concrete Connection and others.

New episodes of Construction Intervention air Fridays at 10 p.m. EST. Visit www.discovery.com/construction for more details.
