Specifiers Safeguard Quality and Increase Value by Calling for INSTALL

No one has greater influence on the success of your design than the flooring installer.

At INSTALL, we understand the value of the specification process. We know that you put a lot of time and research into choosing the right products and systems. We also understand that, if not installed properly, no product will perform the way the designer intends. A poor floor installation can be expensive and time consuming, and can tarnish the image of everyone involved.

By relying on work done by INSTALL certified installers, specifiers and architects can rest assured that the floor will live up to its design intent.
