Pine Street BuildingCambria is getting bigger in Decatur! Atlanta Glass & Mirror recently had the opportunity to move locations from 3000 Pine Street to 210 Rio Circle, which freed up 18,000 square feet in the Pine Street building. Now, we have enough capacity to house 3,000 Cambria countertop slabs in one spot!

Within the new Cambria warehouse, the quartz slabs are stored in racks. Each slab is individually bar-coded and arranged by design. Two overhead bridge cranes run the length of the building to help transport the heavy quartz slabs throughout the warehouse. After the move, the remainder of the Pine Street building was remodeled to be used as a new office for the Commercial and Multi Family Estimation team for Atlanta Kitchen, Atlanta Marble and National StoneWorks.

ArchitextureThroughout the past year, the flooring industry has observed a new retro trend, a comeback of the hardwood flooring look from years past. Now, Construction Resources’ Builders Floor Covering & Tile is hopping on the bandwagon and providing new hardwood flooring options to give our customers the distressed, soft scraped, rustic look they are looking for. The company is now offering the Architexture line, one of Mohawk’s newest hardwood flooring introductions.

Architexture is an engineered hardwood that offers the timeless beauty that many of our customers are seeking in their flooring. These hardwoods provide a one-of-a-kind, wire-brushed texture that is unique from Mohawk’s other products. Additionally, Architexture hardwoods measure over seven inches wide and six feet long, giving the floors a deeper visual appeal.

Aside from a stunning look and feel, Architexture hardwoods offer a simple approach to maintenance and installation. Since the product’s beams are longer, the surface is smoother and uninterrupted. This means the floors have less soil-attracting seams, significantly simplifying their upkeep. Architexture hardwoods can be installed in three different ways – at an angle, drop down or horizontally. This gives the buyer options to choose from based on the layout of their home. The floors can also be glued down for even more of a seamless appeal.

Architexture’s manufacturer, Mohawk, is a leading flooring manufacturer across the globe. Their innovative, industry-leading practices bring fourth products that are trusted and recognized among consumers.
