Demolition VS Renovation
So much of a strong flooring installation happens before the first piece of flooring is installed. And getting to that point is most of the challenge. The last thing you want to do is go backwards with demolition of the subfloor followed by reconstruction efforts.Learn More

Featured Before & After Projects
Stone Ridge Homes
In this quick video it’s not difficult to see the condition of this ordinary gypsum subfloor. Normally a cracked and unsound subfloor like this would need complete demolition. Instead, the contractor used Schönox APF, synthetic gypsum fiber reinforced self-leveling compound, with extraordinary results. Take a look for yourself when the contractor walks in the same area as that shown in the Before segment of the video.
Salt Lake City Multi-Family Project
Subfloor challenges in multi-family housing projects are legendary. At this Salt Lake City project site the subfloor shows a significantly damaged ordinary gypsum surface, exposed and unsound plywood areas, and residual flooring adhesive in the kitchen and bath. These are common sites for flooring contractors. The contractor used Schönox AP, synthetic gypsum self-leveling compound, throughout this apartment to renovate the subfloor and quickly prepare it for new flooring.

What Clients Are Saying
There is nothing in the market that does what Schönox does. Schönox products are user friendly, the final product turns out perfect every time, and pricing is better than most competitive products. In typical renovations where the subfloor has flex or is crumbling, we would have to tear out the subfloor. Schönox APF eliminates the need for demolition. There are huge advantages in not needing to demo compared with other products on the market.Craig Fisher, Owner: Royal Floor Covering
We recently renovated a second floor apartment with existing lightweight concrete that had started to crack and crumble. Typically we would pull out the existing concrete and pour with lightweight concrete in its place. Redi Carpet highly recommended we change our direction and use Schönox. We were skeptical at first, but the results with Schönox AP were outstanding. When the new subfloor was dry, there was no give. It’s like a new floor. The ease of installation was relatively simple and the outcome superb. It allowed us to turn the apartment around in less time with a strong, solid subfloorDan Graner, Facility Manager: Lakewood Apartments, Houston, Texas
We use Schönox every chance we get, especially in healthcare environments. It works great, turns out very smooth, emits low amounts of dust, the psi is so high you don’t have to worry about anything, and the performance is far and above superior to most other products we’ve tried before.Craig Fisher, Owner: Royal Floor Covering
Schönox AP and Roll and Go™ LVT adhesive are great for use in hospital corridors or operating rooms. Using the system together cuts turnaround time in half, which is huge for hospitals, getting the rooms back up and running very quickly. Schönox opens up a lot of doors for us. The combination of less demolition with a superior product result makes great business sense.Craig Fisher, Owner: Royal Floor Covering
