We are proud and thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our first CFI (Certified Flooring Installers) certification course on January 9th-10th, 2015. This will be the first time in over a decade that CFI has held a course in New England! The two day event will take place at our new headquarters in Avon, MA and is open to all local installers with at least 2 years experience. Not only will we be certifying our entire team, we will also have the opportunity to meet with flooring professionals throughout the region to discuss our craft, to further improve our practices, and to expand our reach outside of the Greater Boston area. We hope that this is another step toward delivering the absolute BEST carpet and rug services offered ANYWHERE.
