Accessories include a wide variety of products that are necessary for the installation and maintenance of flooring and wall products. Although they are subordinate or supplementary products, their use contributes to the finished effect and performance of an installed product.
Storefloors considers accessory products a critical component of the finished floor specification to ensure a properly finished floor and protect manufacturers’ warranties (proprietary adhesives as an example).
Flooring adhesive refers to a variety of compounds which are used to attach a floor covering material to the subfloor or underlayment. Different types of adhesives are recommended for different types of flooring or wall panels, although some multi-purpose adhesives can be used effectively with multiple materials. Storefloors recommends and supplies all the adhesives shipped to our projects. Particular attention is given to those adhesives formulated by the manufacturer to be used with their products for performance and warranty purposes.
