Schönox kicks off subfloor competition

Home News Schönox kicks off subfloor competition

Florence, Ala.—Schönox has announced the start of its third annual ‘Worst Subfloor’ contest, whereby participants are asked to submit entries featuring their most challenging subfloor projects and how they renovated those tough subfloor conditions using Schönox products. The worst subfloor challenges paired with the best renovation performance win.

“The response to the contest has been strong in its first two years and we are already seeing entries for this year,” said Thomas Trissl, principal, HPS Schönox. “It’s a great opportunity to take a look at the most extreme conditions in the field and recognize the great work being done by flooring professionals all across North America.”

Contest entries are judged 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. Entries are reviewed and scored by three independent judges and the winners receive a variety of prizes and much-deserved recognition for their hard work and professional approach to subfloor preparation. Contestants 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.

“The contest provides a real-world proving ground putting Schönox products to the test in the worst subfloor circumstances,” said Doug Young, executive vice president, HPS Schönox. “Everything that we learn in the field is taken back and incorporated into our research and development efforts ensuring that our products meet emerging subfloor challenges, perform even better and do so more quickly.”

The contest runs through Dec. 9. The winners will be announced at TISE 2017  in Las Vegas.
