In Memory of Kenneth Aarestad The Old Guy in our local group of installers passed away today. He was just getting to his flooring job at the local college when he collapsed with a heart attack, if I have my facts straight. Kenny was a very generous installer with his years of knowledge and experience. He would have been great on TFP because he never hesitated to help me when I had questions about carpet, vinyl, prep, etc. You always knew that you were tearing up a job that he had done because the risers were well-glued on the stairs, or the concrete tackstrip was double nailed, or the hardwood floor underneath the carpet had been protected from pad staples since he would use duct tape instead. I am a better, more careful installer because I have known Kenny. He told me that when he retired he would share all his secrets over many cups of coffee...he never retired.
