Floor Coverings – This workshop will be led by Cory Rundle, Store Manager & Design Consultant at Providence Flooring & Painting. Established in 2009, the retail store has the best and most extensive selection of floor coverings in the Tri-Cities area. The main topic of this class will be vinyl plank flooring, also called luxury vinyl flooring (LVF). This product is similar to laminate flooring but has superior resistance to moisture and muffles sound better, too. It is fairly easy for volunteers to install, and is affordable. A second product that will be covered in the workshop is peel & stick carpet tiles. While some home repair nonprofits shy away from installing carpet because of its effect on indoor air quality (carpet may act as a repository for pollutants), some homeowners request it. Carpet provides an extra layer of insulation, and peel & stick carpet tiles are quite durable. If a tile gets damaged, you can easily remove and replace it. The material is very easy for volunteers to install, so it's another affordable option. Cory will share technical information about both products and offer tricks and tips for their installation, including in doorways and transitions between rooms. There will be opportunities for hands-on practice with both products during the workshop.

All pre-conference workshops will be held from 9am-12pm on Wednesday, November 6th at MeadowView Marriott in Kingsport, TN. Separate registration is required. The cost is $45 for members and $65 for non-members. Workshop registration includes a breakfast snack (whole fruit, granola bar, and coffee, hot chocolate, and tea) and a boxed lunch (turkey sandwich with swiss cheese, tomato, and lettuce on a kaiser roll - vegetarian option available, apple, chips, cookies, and iced tea or water), which will be available at 12pm.
