Property Brothers Keeping Floor Materials Ready at BFCThe Property Brothers, stars of one of HGTV’s most popular reality television shows, are coming to Atlanta to help remodel a home with their particular brand of expertise. For this job, they needed somewhere with enough space to hold a lot of flooring – and we mean a lot of flooring! Even better, it was Mohawk Flooring, and as our own Builders Floor Covering and Tile is a two-time winner of Mohawk Retailer of the Year, we were more than happy to provide a storage solution for the project  until the Property Brothers were ready to use it.

We are excited that Mohawk Flooring will be used in a Property Brothers renovation, and it will be another chance to show off the bold designs and quality of Mohawk. While SmartStrand Silk carpets and Armormax hardwoods look amazing in our showrooms, they look even better in homes! The Property Brothers have the skills to put the Walnut Mocha and Hickory Gunpowder hardwood floors that are sitting in our warehouse to perfect use. Read More→

Earth DayEarth Day 2014 is right around the corner on April 22 and there’s no better home improvement group to celebrate with! At Construction Resources, we do everything we can to help promote recycling and environmental awareness with our product selections and practices.

For products, we are proud to have exclusive agreements to market some of the most planet-friendly materials on market. Just a small selection of our green products include:

  • Cambria – as a Cambria Lexus partner, we support this American-made product at the highest level. In addition to leaving a smaller carbon footprint getting to our 20,000 square foot facility in Georgia, Cambria recycles 100 percent of the water used in slab creation through a series of advanced filters. In addition, all of their scrap material is collected and used as road base material for local construction.
  • Vetrazzo – a green product to begin with, Vetrazzo is a counter surface that takes post-consumer and building glass to form its design and a majority of its construction. In addition, the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility where Vetrazzo is made conforms to strict green building and environmental standards.
  • Piedrafina – is another primarily-recycled product that we are proud to put at the forefront of our offerings. Piedrafina is created with 95 percent recycled marble stuck together with a polyester resin that offers a more durable surface than traditional marble. Piedrafina is a thinner material, so it is recommended for use only in bathroom vanities, tub surrounds and other decorative uses.

In addition, our fabrication facility uses industry-leading tools, including the most sophisticated water jets and with some of the most detailed planning software available. This makes sure that only the smallest amount of material is wasted in the fabrication process. In addition, we recycle 95 percent of the water that is used in our saw jet operations so that water doesn’t go to waste.  Lastly, we sell remnants from all of our projects at greatly reduced prices so that those that can use the leftovers from other projects can do so at a low cost. Stop by our Decatur Design Studio to see all the ways you can bring home environmentally-friendly upgrades today!

Spring Home Show MannequinConstruction Resources is excited to announce that Builders Floor Covering and Tile booth recently won Best Booth at the 36th Annual Spring Atlanta Home Show at the Cobb Galleria.

Known as Georgia’s largest home show, the Atlanta Home Show has hundreds of participating companies each year. Therefore, the honor came as a big surprise for the company.

“We wanted to make our booth stand out from the others while still showcasing our wide assortment of quality flooring options,” explained Justin Atcheson, owner of Builders Floor Covering and Tile. “To do so, our team envisioned combining our products with fashion – kind of like top fashions for your home. It was a very creative set-up.”

The team accomplished their goal by weaving flooring samples together and designing two eye-popping dresses. A summer dress was made with glass tile while an evening gown was made with wood samples. The gown even included a shawl made of carpet. These dresses were then displayed on mannequins with colorful backdrops full of additional products.Spring Home Show Mannequin Gown

“I am so proud of everyone who put so much effort and time into creating our booth,” said Atcheson. “They did an outstanding job thinking outside the box and pulling it all together. This is such a great honor!”

In addition to the dresses, Builders Floor Covering and Tile brought a selection of their most popular products from Mohawk, Shaw, Karastan, Stanton and many more for carpet, hardwood, tile and laminate.

Currently, the summer dress is on display at the Decatur design center while the evening gown is at the Buckhead design center. To learn more about Builders Floor Covering and Tile, go to www.getnewfloorstoday.com. To learn more about Construction Resources, check out www.CRHomeUSA.com.

New Outdoor Turf TechnologyOne of Builders Floor Covering and Tile’s favorite brands, Shaw, is getting involved in a big way with the new LakePoint Sporting Community, the newest attraction coming to Lake Emerson for both recreational and amateur athletes. Shaw will provide newly innovated artificial turf called Hydrochill that radiates up as the day wears on and is easier on the joints; and with the same level of durability that Shaw is known for, which will make this new turf look amazing for years to come! Hydrochill is going to be installed in the lacrosse, soccer and baseball fields. This will be the largest install of turf in the world.

The new community will be the largest and most comprehensive sports vacation destination in the world. With more than 1,300 acres featuring state-of-the-art sports venues for over 20 of America’s favorite sports, and five million square feet of mixed-use development, LakePoint promises to be the premier destination for the travel sports lifestyle. Rally Volleyball has the honor of being one of the first sport areas completed, going live in May 2014. The complex’s five million square feet of mixed-use commercial development will include extensive retail, hotel, office, entertainment and medical components. Read More→

Additionally, Builders Floor Covering & Tile provided amazing Lexmark carpeting to complete the homes.
