Our very own, Peter Criscione, gave the RD Weis tech room a brow lift! Brighter lights, a green "white board" for better tech/operations communication, painted ceiling tiles to match the office theme and a tired 36" plain wood table gets recycled.

Techs are excited and more engaged loving their new space.

"CTS Flooring has very solid and experienced people throughout the organization and has an impeccable reputation in the national flooring installation arena."

Drew Guinan, who has led CTS for the last decade will continue in his role as CEO to assure business continuity throughout the organization. 

Weis added, "I am looking forward to working with Drew and the entire team at CTS Flooring, as we have known each other for a very long time, and have similar values and goals.  This will be a win/win for everyone."

After January 1, the official name for CTS Flooring will be CTS Flooring Group. CTS and RD Weis' common ownership ensures that their customers and prospects can take advantage of the strengths of both companies to solve their flooring and other interior needs.

New Project: the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital Kitchen, New Brunswick, NJ

Most corporate kitchens are made from quarry tile, mostly red with grey grout. This tile gets dirty easy and is hard to clean. Cleaning is done mainly through power cleaning, which leads to the grout dislodging over time.

Our aim was to eliminate these issues. We removed the grout and the under glue, right down to the cement. Then moisture meditation was performed. Once the cement was dried, a self-leveling epoxy went down followed by a sprinkling of sand and lastly a glossy epoxy for waterproofing. This process is being done for both commercial and corporate kitchens and the results are amazing.

The pictures tell the story: (clockwise starting from far left)

Pic 1: Old floor with added temporary wall to limit dust.
Pic 2: Water mitigation to fix excess moisture issues.
Pics 3 and 4: New floor - already a working floor.


The result? No more dirty grout and the floor cleans with less water.

New Product: Surface Architectural Supply!

Surface Architectural Supply

A company promoting sustainability in the best way possible - by example. Most of the wood is sourced from structures that are many years old, some dating back as far as the Civil War.
 
Their reclaimed and sustainable lumber is hand selected for the best look. The reclaimed wood is then cleaned, de-nailed and re-sawn. Next, sterilization and kiln-drying occurs. The wood is then cut into wide planks before being milled to standard thickness.

A tongue and groove is milled into the planks and any defects are removed. The wood is squared to achieve an exact fit

Standard lengths range from 3 feet to 12 feet with widths anywhere from 3 ½ inches to 11 ½ inches. Special requests for custom milling can easily be accommodated.
Wood Species

Surface mainly sources reclaimed oak, pine, walnut, chestnut and brown board. The sustainable woods are usually Walnut and Cherry but they have access to all species.
Textures

Original: Surface of the wood in its original state.

Hit & Miss: Some of the original surface is removed to reveal the wood beneath.

Smooth: The wood is completely resurfaced.

What Makes us Proud

We received an email after completing a job. It's emails like this that make us proud of the work we do.


Dear Randy,

Brian and Anthony, your team out of the Hartford office, did an EXCEPTIONAL job cleaning our commercial rental yesterday. They took great care to get it as best as it could be. 

I asked a lot of questions because I was dealing with leaving an unruly Landlord. Carlos was quick to respond and was very helpful, as well. It is clear you have a TEAM, and a very good one, that care about what they do.

Brian's knowledge of why certain stains would react certain ways before and after cleaning coupled his calm demeanor is an example of true professionalism. They represented RD Weis with great customer service and excellent workmanship.  

I may not have a ton of referrals, yet when I do, the only place we will recommend
is RD Weis. 

And it bears repeating, your guys are simply great. 

Thank you, and to your team. 

Sincerely...
