Floorcovering Solutions

INSTALLed on-time, on-budget, every time.

Southern District professionals work closely with all facets of the construction industry to ensure the flooring portion of a project is done completely to the customer’s satisfaction. We cater to facility managers and construction specifiers, acting as both a resource for job-specific problem-solving, and as a provider of training and specification language.

Our Region represents this region’s best contractors and is the local authority on flooring installation. Our contractors use INSTALL-trained professionals exclusively. These men and women have extensive experience and continually stay abreast of the many flooring installation products, installation methods and designer specification trends.

The INSTALL Program

INSTALL is the floor covering industry’s working cooperative of mills, manufacturers, industry consultants, contractors and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) who combine to present the best training installation program in North America.

Through this alliance, INSTALL Southern District mechanics receive the newest installation methods and newest technology from the 100+ mills and manufacturers who partner to keep our training the best in the business. Technical experts from the biggest names in the flooring industry partner with veteran instructors from the UBC to take an active role in helping to update the INSTALL curriculum on a regular basis. These experts ensure that INSTALL’s curriculum addresses current labor needs in the floor covering industry.

INSTALL is also supported by the UBC International Training Fund, which allots more than $200 million each year to training its members, including floor layers.

When you specify one of our regions INSTALL Warranty Contractors, the work is backed by the industry’s only additional, free, third-party, extended warranty on labor. We believe so much in the performance of our trained flooring installers that our warranty is in place to guarantee satisfaction.
