FLOORING FINISH STANDARDS

Background

Finished flooring work is subject to the same phenomena during construction of a home
that applies to drywall and plaster, namely shrinkage and warpage of the surface to which it
is applied, settling of the home, expansion and contraction of the subsurface to which it is
applied with moisture and temperature variations. Most of the problems which occur
affecting flooring are a result of these natural phenomena occurring during the stabilization
of the home during the initial warranty period and are mirrored in the floor coverings.

Resilient flooring is a manufactured bought as a finished product, either in the form of
squares or sheet goods, which is applied by the appropriate trade, predominantly with
mastic directly over the surface prepared to accept it.

The following finished flooring standards are contained separately in this section:

1. Carpeting
2. Ceramic or Quarry Tile
3. Resilient Flooring
