Floor Laying

Our floor layers learn from an established set of standards, which include fundamental, core installer skills; graduated levels of skill competence and experience; written proof of theoretical knowledge; and hands-on skill testing. Standards also include external educational accreditation of trainers and trainees.

By placing Florida floorcovering specialists on your project, you are avoiding the hassle and expense of recruiting, hiring, and training workers.

Our trained and certified flooring installers go into every job with the knowledge and tools to get the job done right the first time. The result is an attractive floor that functions as intended without costly and time-consuming repairs or replacement.

No flooring product has value until it is correctly installed. By delivering comprehensive training, we ensure that all stakeholders, from specifiers and owners to contractors and installers, realize the full value of a successful flooring installation.
