Judge’s panel chosen for Schönox ‘worst subfloor’ contest

Home Press Release Judge’s panel chosen for Schönox ‘worst subfloor’ contest

Florence, Ala. — Earlier this month HPS Schönox kicked off a Contest asking the question, Is your company working on a project that has what might be the worst subfloor in North America?  Today, the company announced who will judge the responses to that question.  Schönox put together the Worst Subfloor in North America Contest to shine a light on tough subfloor conditions, detail the best ways to renovate them, and provide some recognition and publicity for the companies who handle these challenging projects.  John McGrath (director, INSTALL), Lew Migliore (president, LGM and Associates Technical Flooring Services) and Jim Walker (CEO, International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association/CFI) will judge the contest after the entry end date of Dec. 15.

“I was delighted to sign on to judge the Worst Subfloor in North America Contest,” McGrath said.  “Any event designed to showcase the expertise of professional flooring companies and the challenges they face in the field is of special significance for me.”  The contest entries will be independently judged with first, second, and third place winners being awarded Schönox products based on the severity of the original subfloor’s condition, the skill and attention to detail taken in executing the project, and the quality of the finished subfloor.

“Installation companies and contractors face a wide range of subfloor challenges on a daily basis in the field,” Migliore said. “I’ve seen so many of those subfloor issues and see new ones each day; the Schönox Contest will likely show us even more.”  Those entering the contest are asked to photograph the subfloor conditions before and after the subfloor renovation project and submit the photos, along with some project information, at hpsubfloors.com/worstsubfloor where contest details can be found. Winners will be announced at Surfaces in 2015.
