Larson Distributing Co., in cooperation with Mannington Mills, has developed a program designed to help reduce consumer claims. Addressing the industry wide problem of installation failure, the Certified Installer Testing Program for Mannington vinyl, wood, and laminate floor products was created. After the program’s first sixteen months, the company announced that installers who passed the program had a claim rate of zero.

Larson and Mannington provide an installation guarantee to supply each certified installer with up to $6,000 of material for claims during the three-year duration of the certification. The warranty applies to residential installations completed by a certified installer using Mannington products from Larson Distributing.
