Pediatric Dentist and Orthodontist

It was a pleasure to provide the flooring for a Palm Harbor pediatric dentist and orthodontist office.  We contoured the glass to the radius of the entry wall.  We used a flexible metal transition to separate between the carpet and porcelain wood.  We ramped the substrate so that the carpet and tile would have the same finished height (to avoid any trip hazards).  The wood-looking porcelain tile ran from one contiguous area to the next without transitions.  The linear appearance of the carpet and wood-porcelain were run in the building's length as a complimentary layout.
