Columbia SDA Church was in the process of selecting a new carpet for several areas in their building, including the sanctuary, classrooms, and lobby, when Lucas Commercial Flooring Group connected with one of the committee members. The committee had been working on making a carpet selection for the church, but the quotes they had received didn’t give the committee much information on what to expect from the materials quoted.
The church didn’t want to replace their flooring with just anything, they wanted to find a product that, with proper maintenance, would last 10-15+ years without blowing their budget. Reviewing samples for styles and colors that worked with the facility, Dana explained how the carpet backing, type and shape of the fibers, ounce weight and height of the loops, and dying process of the fibers all went into the longevity of the product. She then worked with the committee to rank the samples on value, considering both quality and pricing in the ranking.
The final selection was a carpet tile with a rubber backing, type 6,6 nylon fibers, 22 oz. level loop, a mix of solution and space dyed fibers, and a gorgeous pattern that will provide the Columbia SDA Church a flooring solution that will be beautiful for many years!
