Flooring Questions

Flooring Questions

1. What sub-base do you need?

That depends on which product you are installing. The better the sub-base the better the final project. A flat smooth surface is key. Most sub-bases are concrete or a fine aggregate of asphalt. Please contact us for specifics. Some of our pavers and tiles are able to be installed on a 2A modified stone base.

2. What states do you serve?

We cover the entire continental United States. If we are unable to supply in your area we will forward your information (free of charge) to a local company that is better able to help you.

5. How long does the flooring last?

6. How long do I have to wait until the product is available?

There is a lead time with each product. Our typical lead time is 7 days for AktivLok and 4 weeks for AktivPro Tiles. The pavers also have a long lead time, depending on the order it can be up to 3 months. If everything is in stock that you have ordered there can be a quick turnaround.

7. How much does it cost to ship?

Shipping varies by weight, shipping destination and type of receiving establishment. There is a surcharge for lift-gate trucks, residential, construction and farm deliveries. Rubber is a very heavy product and the shipping costs can be very high.

Maintenance is easy for all our products. A neutral PH cleaner (7-9) such as our Hillyard Products can be used.  For specific product maintenance guides, please contact us.
