Specification and flooring design
The design of your floor can be an inexpensive method of adding vibrancy to your space. Flooring Solutions will collaborate with you to select durable products that create a lasting impression. Your staff will be more productive working in an environment they feel comfortable in, and your guests will visually experience the professionalism you practice. Flooring Solutions represents all manufacturers of commercial flooring products. We intently listen to our clients' expectations and, because we have no bias towards a particular type of flooring product or manufacturer, we are in the best position to help you analyze what products best solve your application. Flooring Solutions is very effective at accurately budgeting and providing expert advice regarding product performance and installation. We know how to knit different flooring types together to avoid elevation differences that cause tripping hazards and eliminate ugly/bulky transition strips.
Repair Floors not yet Ready for Replacement
Repairing floors so no one can see they were repaired is often more difficult than installing new. Flooring Solutions is very creative at combining different flooring materials or designing contrasting colors in shapes that appear to have been an original design element but actually replaced a section of flooring that was damaged or worn.
Replace Flooring in Occupied Space
Are you overwhelmed at the prospect of replacing the flooring in your heavily occupied space? Anyone not familiar with the process could be. Are you concerned that you need to shut down your business operations to enhance the look and feel of your work environment for employees and guests? Flooring Solutions will manage the process of flooring replacement without disrupting your operations through detailed planning and thorough communications. We will move your free standing furniture and lift your systems furniture, without disconnecting electrical wires and data cables within furniture systems. We perform this work in phases, during non-business hours. When you arrive back to work the next day, nothing will be disturbed and new flooring will be installed. Flooring Solutions has the experience and expertise to manage this process for you.

Water Jet Cutting Intricate Designs

The flooring product that is water jet cut arrives on site sequentially packaged allowing for a quicker installation.
Sustainability & Leed
(Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design)
The most effective and least expensive way to be environmentally responsible is to choose products that perform and maintain long term appearance retention so they are replaced less often. Flooring Solutions will help you sift through the "green washing" of product claims and select products that not only look great, but will perform to your expectations. We can recycle your old carpet after it has served its useful life and present you with a certificate of recognition as verification that it will not end up in a landfill. Our team has contributed to Silver, Gold, & Platinum certified projects.
