Workshop: Flooring — 2 of 2

March 27, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Wood and laminate flooring products are designed for the DIYer.  But with so many products on the market, it is critical to have a clear understanding of the materials available today. The Landmarks Preservation Resource Center, in a partnership with DIY Pittsburgh, will offer a Home Improvement Workshop Series.  In this session of Flooring, students will learn about the materials and installation of solid wood, engineered wood, and laminate flooring.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
