LGM & Associates Latest Commercial Flooring Report

Evaluations of a flooring problem cannot be based upon the biases of the people making them. The conclusions have to be based on the objective analysis of the evidence.

More often than not in this industry, the manufacturer will conclude that the problem being experienced is the result of a faulty installation. This is even truer in the case of luxury vinyl plank and tile. Much of these products, up to this point, are being made by someone other than the “manufacturers” selling it. Very often the seller does not understand the product or its differentiating characteristics.

Wagner Meters: How to Keep Your Customers Coming Back

It all started with a social media post. Jason Goldberg, founder and CEO of America’s Floor Source was looking to upgrade the moisture meters used by the techs, inspectors, account managers, and others in his business. He decided to post a question on Facebook, asking for recommendations about meters. People pointed Goldberg to four main moisture meter suppliers. Of these, it quickly became apparent which one would get Jason’s business — Wagner Meters.

Goldberg reported, “There was never a question” who he would choose. As he began working with different suppliers, the level of customer service at Wagner Maters and the quality of their products stood out. Wagner’s distributor, Fishman Flooring Solutions, demonstrated strong teamwork, which helped too. The resulting deal was the largest single retailer order in the history of Wagner Meters. Learn more about the story and why Wagner’s customers keep coming back.
