This particular loss was created by a slab leak that was located above the aggregate and within the slab. The flooring was not removed in this area during the mitigation phase. Thus, it needed to be removed during the repair phase. The flooring was a challenge to remove, and the glue residue required diamond grinding prior to installing the glue down engineered flooring. Due to OSHA’s new silica guidelines introduced in 2016, this Insight Sheet has been updated to reflect the required personal protective equipment that would accompany repair phase activities like diamond grinding of the slab. The engineered wood flooring was evaluated by ITEL and the components pricing for the materials was updated accordingly.

This Insight Sheet exists to clarify how one might invoice for glue down wood flooring. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.

As Seen In Xact

Why does Xact only allow for material waste on floorcovering products and not labor waste? It includes a 10 percent waste on the material only, but most installers and retail stores charge the labor for the entire amount ordered. This is due to having to carry in, sort out bad portions (damaged), and waste from cuts that are not usable again. The installer(s) have handled the material and deserve to be compensated for this, not just what is finished on the floor.

I disagree that it would be insignificant. The 10 % waste on 1000 sf is 100 sf. An installer is going to charge the install rate on that amount and that can add up to hundreds of dollars not accounted for. This is for all the flooring groups that are not figured by sheet goods (laminate, vinyl plank, hardwood etc).

Yes, this is an issue I being having with Adjusters in regards about Laminate Floor, Wood Floor and Tile, unlike Carpet and Vinyl when added to a specific room, will automatically added up the 10% on Waste Factor Material, unlike the other components for Tile and Wood Flooring
- I see on the Material bases for this components that is assuming a 10% Waste for that specific line item, but the SF doesn't change at all.

Will be really helpful if I can get some feedback for this

Thank you
