Commercial Cafeteria Flooring Case Study
Challenge: Centra State’s Main Cafeteria Servery in Freehold, New Jersey was in need of a face lift. Several pieces of equipment were scheduled to be upgraded. The floors were to be replaced and the walls painted. The challenge was how to perform this renovation while still making sure the server was able to feed the people in the hospital.
Recommendation: The hospital decided to close the servery for two weeks while the renovations were occurring. They opened a satellite servery in a section of the seating area.
Commercial Flooring Results: CFIC mobilized crews to begin removing the existing 2” x 2” ceramic tiles. The use of chipping hammers were used. The floor was stripped of the existing tile and then the floor was leveled and crack suppression membrane was applied where needed. CFIC then laid out a 12” x 12” Crossville Porcelain tile in a checkerboard fashion. Once the floor was installed and cured, CFIC used Hydroment Trucolor grout. Trucolor is a stain resistant grout that should perform very well in this type of environment.
Dental Office Testimonial
I wanted to thank you again for the great job you did with the installation of the new flooring and carpeting in our office. It was a tough job with the installation having to coordinate with the dental supply company moving and then re-installation our dental units. Your team are real pros. We were down a minimum amount of time considering the work you had to do, and the fact that the subfloor had to be repaired more than you had anticipated. The flooring in the operatories is good looking and comfortable to "roll"on (as you know we needed) and the carpeting has brought us many complements from patients.
Thanks also for quickly returning when some minor adjustments were needed after the equipment was re-installed, and your prompt response when I was concerned about a stain in the waiting room.
It was a pleasure doing business with you. I would be happy to recommend your company to anyone concerned about good service and quality workmanship.
~ Jeffrey A. Everitt, DMD

High Traffic Store Tile
“I’m fortunate to have a very high traffic store and my floor takes a serious beating in a very small area. Commercial Flooring & Interior Concepts came in and for a fair price installed exactly what my business needed. A few weeks later, we noticed a couple of problem areas starting to develop and without hesitation, Tom came in, analyzed those problems and rectified them. For any small business owner, running a business when everything is going smoothly is fairly easy. The truly successful business owners are those that set themselves apart by handling the difficult situation with ease. This is exactly what Tom and his company did. I appreciate and respect the work he did for my business and strongly recommend his company for any of your flooring needs.”

Commercial Flooring For New Construction Testimonial
“Thank you for the beautiful installation of floor coverings that were provided to us in our new offices in Flemington. Your service and professionalism from inception to completion was outstanding.
The installation crew was prompt, courteous and meticulous. Even when faced with typical construction delays and time constraints you managed to get the job done in the time frame we needed to satisfy the Construction Manager (and township ordinances) in order for us to acquire our Certificate of Occupancy.
It was a pleasure to work with you and your crew and we would be happy to recommend your company to any of your future business prospects. My associate in our main business and my right hand woman handling the varied details of this project, Judy Angiuli, has had nothing but compliments toward your firm, and as a matter of fact has already recommend you to the General Contractor of this site.
Lastly I would like to say this; your people always projected the attitude that they wanted me to be happy with the entire project and would do anything to make that so their concern was outwardly directed as opposed to some who are only concerned with the impact on themselves. That attitude was greatly appreciated and makes the last days of any project come together much more smoothly.”
~ Connector Technology INC, J. Puetz, Owner of CTI, Flemington, NJ
