It’s always a treat to end the year celebrating the winners of our Installation Awards. Year after year, I am proud of the skill and craftsmanship displayed in project entries. The hardworking men and women of the flooring installation industry work tirelessly behind the scenes (trust me, I know!), creating unforgettable spaces that can be enjoyed for years to come. Whether these are small-scale or grandiose projects, no matter the size, they are nothing without the floor.

What I enjoy most about our awards is that winners are selected by your industry peers—the people who understand the skill, time, grind and technique it takes to do what you do. That speaks volumes.

While we take some time to shine the spotlight on this year’s winners, I have to tell you that I am already looking forward to next year’s awards. As a trade that is often working in the background, we truly don’t give ourselves enough credit for the work that we do. So let’s start. I challenge you to enter for your chance to win a 2022 Installation Award.

Until then, keep up the great work, and to our winners, congratulations and thank you for the quality work that you are doing.
