Worst Subfloor Contest 2018-12-15T10:27:58+00:00

The entry period for the 2018 Worst Subfloor Contest has ended.

Visit Schönox, HPS North America at the International Surface Event, booth 4719, January 24 as we announce our winner!

Contest Overview

We understand the challenges that installers face day in and day out. Your opponents are dirty, mean, and looking for a fight. You take on subfloors when most would just throw in the trowel. With Schönox in your corner, you have the products, service and technical support to help see you through the final round.

Enter the Schönox Annual Man vs. Floor Worst Subfloor Contest to prove you’ve got the grit and determination to be a champion.

Get That Winning Shot

We really want to see what you’re up against! Here are some photography recommendations to help us decide who truly had the Worst Subfloor:

1. Take photos of the damaged subfloor from multiple angles.

2. Be sure to use a high quality picture setting. We like seeing details!

3. Shoot the finished subfloor from the same angles you shot the damaged subfloor for comparison.

4. Turn on every light at the project site and open all blinds to better show the damage and the quality of the repaired floor.

5. If possible, include shots with the final flooring material installed as well as the finished subfloor. We’d love to see how it turned out!
