I have been in the flooring industry for 40 years. I started as an installer; working with my father and uncles as a teenager and worked my way up to my own business. I have installed residential and commercial flooring, including but not limited to, carpet, linoleum, vinyl, hardwood, laminate, LVT and ceramic tile. I have been certified in Pergo, Armstrong installations, Schluter shower systems and Mannington Floors. I retired from installing in 2017. Since retiring I have been working as a Flooring Sales Consultant and Estimator. In 2020, I completed the FICTS Flooring Inspection Certification Programs and obtained my hard surface and carpet inspections certifications.
