We need everyone...

When we reverse the decline of qualified flooring installers, everyone in the flooring industry wins – from retailers to suppliers, distributers, and even current installers. That’s why we need everyone’s help so that we can all win.


As retailers, you need installation craftsman to make your customers happy. A floor sale isn’t complete until it’s installed, and installed well.

Suppliers & Distributors

You can’t sell more if it can’t be installed. Demand for new flooring is increasing. More installation craftsmen equal more sales.


It’s great to be in high demand, but how much would your business benefit from having more helpers and more craftsmen on your team?
