    Combined Experience of Flooring Professionals at TFP #2

    On July 12, 2009 we started a thread about installer experience. The last total of years experience we had was 2,387 years combined experience. This total was as of May 2, 2010.

    We have had more pros come on board and it would be nice to add their experience to our total.

    I would have moved the first post to here, but don't have a clue of how to do it.

    Great idea, Tandy. I merged your new topic with the old one. I'll make sure it's a sticky topic so it's always at the top of the list of topics in this forum - Spotlight on Professionalism.
