Home News Judges named for HPS Schönox Worst Subfloor Contest

Florence, Ala.—A three-judge panel of independent flooring industry experts has been chosen to oversee the second annual Worst Subfloor Contest sponsored by HPS Schönox.

Tom Jennings, vice president of member services, the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA); Dean Thompson, president and CEO, the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI); and Robert Varden, executive director, Certified Floorcovering Installers (CFI) will judge contest entries.

“I’ve worked in the flooring industry all of my life, having been quite literally born into it with my family’s retail business so doing things right and seeing the industry perform at its highest level is important to me,” Jennings said. “The Worst Subfloor Contest is a great platform for the industry to demonstrate its expertise.”

“Much of my work today is concerned with representing and supporting the flooring industry helping to develop guidelines to ensure quality and sustainability with flooring products and their installation,” Thompson said. “I was eager to assist with the Schönox contest not wanting to miss a chance to support the industry and efforts to continuously improve what is done in the field every day.”

“In my 30 years of flooring experience as an installer, educator, consultant, and technical advisor, I have seen so many tough subfloor conditions and the pressing need for expertise in addressing these situations,” Varden said.

The contest is open to flooring companies to show the tough subfloor conditions they tackled and how they renovated them using Schönox products. The contest runs through Dec. 11, with winners to be announced at The International Surface Event (Surfaces) in Las Vegas. Entries can be submitted at hpsubfloors.com/worstsubfloor. First, second and third place winners are chosen 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.
