Mother Nature holds nothing back when it comes to storms. It can sometimes take years for people to recover from hurricanes and tropical storms and the resulting flooding. Some of the most difficult installation challenges arise in the wake of natural disasters. And when water is present, these projects must be approached carefully and systematically. If not, subsequent failure is highly likely.
“Be prepared” is not just a Boy Scout motto. Being prepared for a floor installation project is the best way to ensure your project will flow smoothly and with the least amount of disruption to the overall construction schedule. It seems simple enough, but it’s easy to overlook a critical task if you’re not aware of what it is, why it’s important, when to do it, and who is responsible for getting it done. This Starlog provides an overview of some important pre-installation checklist items you can use to “be prepared” for your next flooring project.

So, we’d like to take this opportunity to reintroduce this important topic to Starnet® member customers.
