This training course is a slide/audio combo of students asking questions of wood flooring professionals with combined experience of nearly a century in the industry! It is directed towards educating retailers, architects, designers, and installers. This is an opportunity to gain understanding of floor failures and how to prevent them, best application and procedures, and how to maximize your sales while minimizing your claims.
The frequency of moisture-related flooring problems has led to the development of numerous moisture mitigation strategies. In this training course, students will learn about each of the various approaches to moisture mitigation and how to determine which approach is best for each concrete sub-floor condition.
Wood flooring turning up at the edges, sheet vinyl lifting off of concrete substrates, carpet tiles emitting foul odors. Failures in floor covering occur daily around the country, plaguing flooring retailers/dealers, contractors and end users. In many cases, the failure – and the huge costs and losses associated with it – could have been avoided. Watch this training course and learn about the most common complaints associated with each flooring product and how to avoid them. We’ll even discuss how to turn complaints into opportunities to increase repeat and referral business.
This training course will explore problems and causes that are installation, job-site and manufacturer related. We will cover real world cases of actual flooring failures, such as cupping, checking, edge lifting, buckling, and gapping. You will leave the course with a better understanding of the most common failures, why they occur and the proper corrective measures. Nail down, glue down, and floating installations will be covered.
Are you wondering why suddenly even the best installers are having problems with their carpet installations? Are you suddenly seeing material that looks very different than it has in the past?

Even the best installers must educate themselves on the changes taking place with carpet today, or they will inevitably have a failure. This training course will explore the latest products you need to know about before you end up eating the job simply because you didn’t use the proper seaming tape, seam sealer, or even tack strip. You will also have the opportunity to handle various carpet samples, as you learn the importance of identifying today’s carpets.
