The sport Court® flooring was delivered in early May. Big Springs decided that it would be best to wait until the summer break before beginning installation. This would create as little campus disruption as possible. Plus, there wasn’t any urgency to have the floor immediately installed. Basketball and volleyball seasons were over. So, the gym wasn’t being used for games or teams practice.
Our crew arrived on Friday, June 4, 2021. By the end of the day, the volleyball sleeves had been removed and re-installed and much of the new flooring was laid. We also patched up some sunken areas around the volleyball sleeves. This created a perfectly smooth surface upon which to install the new flooring. The remainder of the flooring was installed the following day. Game lines were also painted.
Install times are not always this fast. However, because the flooring did not extend to any of the walls, we saved a lot of time. We did not have to trim any flooring to fit at walls or doorways. And, we didn’t need to install cove molding or any thresholds at doorways. It also helped that we had a crew of 6.
