INSTALL Introduces New Warranty Contractor and Alliance Partners
The Brydie Commercial Flooring division has built a strong reputation within the St. Louis area as commercial general contractors, and specializes in carpet, tile, ceramic and stone, as well as resilient, wood, and concrete flooring.
Becoming an INSTALL Warranty Contractor (IWC) is the highest level of certification offered by INSTALL, which provides an additional, extended, free, non-proprietary and third-party installation warranty of $25,000 to every job completed by the contractor.
“INSTALL leverages our wealth of knowledge, decades of experience, and a rigorous training curriculum to deliver the best training program to propel the field further,” said John McGrath, director of INSTALL. “When contractors partner with us, they know their employees will be trained properly and will deliver perfect results for the client.”
Standing behind every IWC since 2013, INSTALL has underwritten over $400 million in flooring installations without a single claim filed, proving that INSTALL training is vital to the continued success of the industry. The INSTALL warranty is completely free and goes above and beyond the manufacturer’s warranty.
Becoming an Alliance Partner assures manufacturers that products will be installed correctly every time. These partnerships are vital to the success of INSTALL’s training program by keeping installers trained on the latest technologies. INSTALL is currently partnered with more than 100 major mills and manufacturers, with Novalis Innovative Flooring, Platform Performance Cements, APE Companies and Runyon Surface Prep being added as its newest partners.
Novalis Innovative Flooring, a manufacturer of Luxury Vinyl Tile for 30 years, has been a key leader in the industry by developing the highest manufacturing standards and sustainable practices to ensure a quality flooring product that is both kind to the environment and the installing contractor.
Platform Performance Cements, the manufacturer of Synthecem Cement Technology, set a new standard by combining a proprietary blend of carefully controlled cements and chemical admixtures to create outstanding stability, bond, and self-leveling characteristics.
APE Companies, a service-oriented distributor of surface preparation, safety and environmental management products, supplies products to industrial contractors who provide critical services that maintain and repair facilities and equipment safely and quickly.
Runyon Surface Prep Rental and Supply, a full-service sales and rental facility, provides diverse equipment, tooling, and materials for flooring installers as well as technical training on trowel polishing, concrete polishing surface preparation and concrete repair.
