Floor Flatness - The Cost of Concrete Quality

Thursday February 9th, 2017
11:30 am -1:30 pm
Sandman Hotel
180 West Georgia Street, Vancouver

Presented by LDon Brletic, Regional Manager Western Canada, Ardex Americas
John Alley, Architectural Services Representative, Custom Building Products
Chris Maskell, President, National Floor Covering Association

Achieving floor flatness/ floor level values that allow the floor covering trade to install without delay is a constant challenge in construction. This can have a tremendous impact on the construction schedule, budget and ultimately the project’s completion date. The presentation raises awareness of the disparity between Division 03 and Division 09, and discusses the consequences for tile, resilient and carpet floor coverings and the standards required for each to satisfy warranties and NFCA guidelines.

Don Brletic of Ardex Americas, John Alley of Custom Building Products and Chris Maskell of NFCA have many years of experience, training and educating in the floor covering industry. In addition, Don and John both specialize in subfloor remediation systems and the products that are available to overcome the challenges presented when subfloors do not meet NFCA flatness standards.
