INSTALL’s mission to elevate floor covering standards and provide superior training and certification is largely built through strong industry relationships. INSTALL welcomes its newest INSTALL Warranty Contractors: C.J. Duguid, Ryan Carpet Service, Building Service Inc. (BSI) and Groome Floor Coverings; and its newest alliance partner, MeasureSquare.
INSTALL Warranty Contractor (IWC)
The highest level of certification within the INSTALL program is to attain INSTALL Warranty Contractor (IWC) status. Each of these contractors must be nominated and complete a rigorous review to achieve this status; the company’s labor force must be 100% INSTALL certified, in good financial standing, committed to a level of quality and fair labor practices and have a proven record of excellence in flooring installation.
Since the inception of the INSTALL Warranty Program in June 2013, INSTALL has underwritten approximately $200 million in flooring installations without a single claim filed, making an IWC the go-to choice for commercial flooring projects. Each IWC can maintain the integrity of every design because of their superior level of skills and training.
These companies now carry the INSTALL Warranty on Labor which provides an additional, extended, free, non-proprietary and third-party installation warranty of $25,000 and two years.
