3 Reasons to Replace Your School Flooring This Summer

school flooring

School flooring undergoes a lot of wear and tear throughout the course of the school year. If it’s been a while since you replaced or repaired your school floors, their age is probably noticeable, especially in those high-traffic areas. And now that the end of the school year is in sight, it’s time to start thinking about maintenance and upgrades you can do over the summer. If you have been considering replacing your current flooring with Rikett Quartz Tile, this summer is the time to do it.


Here are three reasons why summer is the ideal time to replace school flooring.


Minimal Disruption

If there is a good time to tear up or refinish your flooring, it would be when your students aren’t in class. Rather than disrupting everyone’s schedules by making certain areas and rooms unusable, it’s best to wait until the students are off for an extended period of time. Even if you do have summer sessions, there are not nearly as many students and teachers in the building. It’s much easier to work around a summer schedule than the constant activity of the regular school year.


Better Weather Conditions

Even though most of the work will occur indoors, the weather is still something you should take into account. Workers can keep doors and windows open for better air circulation, making it easier and safer for them to work. You also don’t have to worry about delays caused by severe weather events like snowstorms.


Faster Turnaround Time

Because school is not in session in the summer, work crews can finish the installation of your new floors much faster. There’s no need to shuffle things around and ensure there are always rooms available for classes and activities. The installation crew can also work more efficiently if they don’t have to worry about staying out of anyone’s way or keeping students out of work areas.


Resilient School Flooring from Rikett

It’s not enough to install new school flooring at the right time, you also need to select flooring that will last. When you choose Rikett Quartz Tile for your flooring, you can expect your floor to last for the life of your building with simple routine maintenance.
