Welcome to the forum. I have been installing since 1973. One of the regulars, Daris has been installing longer yet.In Florida this time of year...
My name is Owen. I've been installing since the late seventies. I've done it all.
Glad to find the forum and chit chat or read about what's happening on the floor.
A really good cove man can find work in any metropolitan area at a decent wage or piece work rate. No matter how good you are though the work doesn't come to you. That's really the part I hate------DRIVING.Actually I started hacking in the late seventies, I didn't actually learn anything until early eighties probably. My apologies to those customers I first had.
Yeah, I've been out of it for a few years , I sort of retired and went into healthcare (long story) but over the last twenty years I've had different people call me and drag me back into it for one reason or another (hard to find good cove and cap installers) but the last couple years have been so bad for healthcare I've decided to go back into flooring until I retire permanently
Wish me well !
