Joe Cea, installation specialist for Congoleum and CFI senior certifier, and members of the CFI team, Tony Buckhardt and Jay Zurn, demonstrated LVT installation requirements including product knowledge, substrate preparation and the importance of professionalism and customer satisfaction.

“CFI and the installers who represent our stores were all extremely professional,” said Doug Bertrand, executive vice president of Carpetland USA and the Langan Group. “I was proud that the installers worked so hard and completed all tasks that were required to successfully earn their CFI certifications. The comments that I received showed it was well worth the investment and I look forward to scheduling another product category event in the future.”
