Winners of 2018 HPS Schönox Worst Subfloor Contest Announced
Las Vegas, NV, February 2, 2018-The winners of the HPS Schönox Worst Subfloor Contest were announced during a ceremony at the International Surfaces Event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
HPS Schönox’s annual Worst Subfloor Contest seeks to answer the question, “What lies beneath?” Many installers face nightmare scenarios when they start new project. They choose to partner with Schönox materials to tackle those extreme subflooring challenges. They are encouraged to take photos during the process and submit these photos along with description of Schönox products.
HPS Schönox asked three well-known people in the industry to serve as judges for the contest entries. The judges included Kimberly Oderkirk, executive vice president of The Flooring Contractor Association; Dean Thompson,pPresident of Resilient Floor Covering Institute; and Peter Craig, concrete floor specialist and consultant with Concrete Construction.

The judges were asked to evaluate the projects 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.
