Raskin donates product to active-duty U.S. Marine

Home News Raskin donates product to active-duty U.S. Marine

Deerfield Beach, Fla.—Summer is the season of patriotic holidays: Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day. In that same vein, it’s the time of year that many people take the opportunity for home improvement projects in between barbecues and trips to the beach. With that, the team at Raskin Industries decided to help with a summer home remodel and lent a hand to one of our country’s brave servicemen.

Earlier this year, Raskin connected with a sergeant of the United States Marine Corps for a home renovation project. The sergeant finds himself working on projects throughout the house when he’s not deployed and this summer saw the revitalizing of two main areas of his home: the dining room and the living room.

Reviewing Raskin’s extensive portfolio of luxury vinyl options, the sergeant selected Pride from the FloorNation collection, a flooring line exclusively made in the USA. FloorNation is ideal for an active home as it comes standard with Raskin’s G88 ceramic coating system, which delivers stain resistance as well as antibacterial/anti-fungal properties. Pride also features a 20-mil wear layer and lifetime residential warranty.

“This floor is a dream floor,” the sergeant said. “It will last as long as we’ll be in this house, and we have no plans to move anytime soon. It’s so much more aesthetically pleasing and much cleaner than the carpet and laminate we had before. We just love the durability.”

Local flooring contractor Carolina Commercial Floorcovering donated time and services to get the install in the home completed. Raskin connected with Dan Brock, Carolina Commercial president, who handed the project over to contractor Tim Dupree and installer Bryan Jones.

“The install was fast and easy,” the sergeant stated. “In a day and a half, the main areas of our living space were done. There was minimal prep and getting the floor down seemed effortless. We love the fact that it’s made in the USA.”

The Carolina Commercial team appreciated the opportunity to share in this project. “It was an honor to provide the installation for such a deserving family; they were very helpful to us during the project,” Brock said. “We would also like to thank Raskin for providing the FloorNation product that was not only easy to install but looks beautiful as well. We know the family is very happy with it.”

Michael Raskin, founder and CEO of Raskin Industries, acknowledged the sacrifice members of the U.S. military make to safeguard our freedoms. “We get to live our lives and conduct business in a free society because of brave men like this sergeant and to have our floors in his family’s home is truly an honor. We are so happy to give the family a refreshed interior with floors they can count on and that are proudly made in the USA. Providing peace of mind is priceless.”
