How a flooring company with no stone fabrication services created a gorgeous fireplace in 3.5 days.
We recently received an awesome story from one of our customers on how the AccuGlide saw solved a huge problem for them. This unique approach shows just how versatile the AccuGlide saw is for all kinds of builders.
ProFloors LLC is a commercial and multifamily flooring contractor in Sarasota, Florida. President Brian Aliotta tells us: “We don’t do any fabrication or slab work here.” On one of his recent projects, he was overseeing the installation of a beautiful porcelain slab fireplace.
“Our original intention was to have a local stone shop fabricate the large porcelain panels,” he said. “We are supposed to have one week for schluter and template, two weeks for fabrications and one week for install. We end up 1.5 weeks away from their grand opening with this fireplace not built correctly (structurally) and covered in drywall (needs to be cement board).”
“Due to a ton of issues (not ours), we had no time left to meet our schedule outsourcing the fabrication,” Bill tells us. His idea? Call AccuGlide to ship out a stone saw ASAP.
Monday morning his team set up a cutting table to start fabricating, Tuesday afternoon they start installing their slabs, and by Thursday morning they had a gorgeous fireplace ready for the grand opening the next day.
Bill emailed us saying, “Thank you for the assistance and getting us the saw and everything so quickly. The AccuGlide made it possible to meet our schedule. Without your saw we never would have been able to make it happen. Thank you again for all your help and making such a great saw system!”
We absolutely love hearing about our saw saving the day! It’s truly a testament to the versatility and ease of use we’ve engineered into each and every saw. Solving problems and boosting the success of our customers, it’s what we’re all about!
