Bubbles, Rippling, and Peeling, Oh My!
Everyone dreads the phone call from a panicked client whose new flooring installation just failed. Join ASID, SEWCTC, and WGBA on Tuesday, November 10th
to learn about the main reasons that flooring installations buckle, bubble and split, including moisture and proper floor preparation. With live demonstrations of carpet, LVT, linoleum, cork, and porcelain tile, as well as two knowledgeable guest speakers, we will walk away with a better understanding of the importance of floor preparation, quality specifications, informed installers, and know what to look for when a flooring seems to be failing! Light refreshments will be served.
