The third annual Schönox Worst Subfloor Contest opens with the starting-gun phrase, “Worst Case Scenario, You Win!” The Contest asks participants to submit entries featuring their most challenging subfloor project and how they renovated tough subfloor conditions using Schönox products. The worst subfloor challenges paired with the best renovation performance win. Entries are reviewed and scored by three independent judges and the winners receive a variety of prizes and recognition for their hard work and professional approach to subfloor preparation.
“The response to the subfloor project contest has been strong in its first two years and we are already seeing entries for this year,” commented Thomas Trissl, principal, HPS Schönox. “It’s a great opportunity to take a look at the conditions in the field and recognize the work being done by flooring professionals all across North America.” Contest entries are judged based on the severity of the original subfloor’s condition, the skill and attention to detail taken in executing the project, and the quality of the finished subfloor. Those entering the contest are asked to photograph the subfloor conditions before and after the subfloor renovation project and submit the photos, along with some project information, at hpsubfloors.com/worstsubfloor where all of the Contest details can be found.
“The Contest puts Schönox products to the test in the worst subfloor circumstances,” explained Doug Young, executive vice president, HPS Schönox. “Everything that we learn in the field is taken back and incorporated into our research and development efforts to ensure that our products meet emerging subfloor challenges.” The Contest runs through December 9th with winners to be announced at TISE (Surfaces) in 2017. The winning flooring companies and installers who worked on the winning projects receive prizes. “Let the worst subfloor win,” remarked Young. “Good luck to everyone.”
