Rick enjoys being “quality control” and a bit of a traffic cop in the warehouse to make sure that quality and accuracy are on point.

Messner doesn’t just “measure,” we assess. There’s a lot more to preparing to install a floor correctly than wielding a measuring tape. Jon earned his Master’s from CFI and uses that knowledge and expertise to make absolutely certain that everything has been anticipated for a new install. In addition, a big part of Jon’s job is going into homes and restretching carpet, fixing holes, and repairing seams on installations that other companies won’t stand by. Jon loves his job because every project is unique, every house has its own requirements and every day is different.
