We are the first and last stop on road to understanding a floor issue.

Moisture Vapor Intrusion

Why have there been so many more failures in the last 30 years than before? The floor-covering industry started to clean up its act in the 1970's. VOC's were removed from chemicals used as bonding and finishing agents. Asbestos was removed from materials and adhesives. This made the materials more sensitive to moisture. We can find your problems and recommend a repair. We can design installation protocols that will protect your materials.

Hospital Floor Safety

Here is a place where the potential for a slip and fall is always present. We have been hired by both plaintiffs and defendants to find the cause(s) of a slip and fall. We consider the floor covering, we look at the victim, study shoe research, study age research, body type research, and industry standard maintenance protocols, looking for answers. We are here to help.

Retailer Store Flooring

We have helped The GAP, Macy’s, Finish Line, Crate & Barrel and many others with floor-covering materials selection, installation protocols, and ongoing programs. We have specified Wood, Cork, Dimensional Stone, Rubber, Linoleum, Vinyl, Ceramic Tile, Agglomerated Stone, concrete polishing and sealer. All good things in the right places, installed properly.
