Welcome the new year with a new foundation
You may be one of the many Hawaii homeowners who have thought about replacing an old floor or dirty carpets with new wood, vinyl or tile flooring. But are you a bit overwhelmed by the choices, mainly because you don’t quite know what those choices are all about? Well, you are not alone, as there are a lot of people out there who feel the same.
“What we notice most about the people who call or come into our showroom is their great need for information,” observed Shirley Pai Hilton of Kahala Pacific Floors. “We can literally spend hours with a particular customer, educating them on the different types of wood and stone flooring; each product’s features, functions and benefits; and also give them tips on what might best suit their decorating taste. It’s an essential part of helping the customer make a decision that they will be happy with.”
For example, did you know that the lines between the planks of wood flooring are called a micro-bevel? Do you know its purpose? Do you know that the top layer of wood on an engineered floor has to be thick enough, but not too thick? Do you know what acclimation is? Do you know the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile?
Hilton attempts to answer these questions and more at the company’s free flooring seminars. The next session will be held on Saturday, Jan. 13 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the company’s beautiful Kalihi showroom. The program will start with very basic information on the various types of wood, vinyl and tile flooring on the market, and Hilton herself is a trained and licensed installation professional who will share extensive information on what a proper installation involves. She also touches on very interesting information regarding the actual manufacturing process and subjects such as environmentally friendly products and Native Hawaiian woods.
“People always walk away very happy with the information that they gain and the feedback has been incredibly positive! If you are looking for new flooring, you should definitely attend,” said Hilton.
And most important, everyone who attends the seminar will be given a free gift and will enjoy private sale pricing strictly reserved for seminar attendees only. On behalf of Kahala Pacific Floors, Happy New Year, and the company looks forward to meeting you on Saturday, Jan. 13!
