Sean and Dave talk about the ups of 2020 and what the view for 2021 is.

 

Maintenance of flooring seems to still be the issue, even with an increase in the market for Luxury Vinyl flooring it is still about taking care of what you put down.  Daily maintenance is NOT grabbing a mop anymore.  Listen to the guys talk about budgets, knowledge, and time.
