Installation & Removal
With installation experience ranging from time sensitive safety hazard repairs, to major phased projects, and projects requiring furniture lifts and after hours work, Universal Flooring provides qualified personnel to meet the specific requirements of each job.
Universal Flooring obtains the services of a core group of flooring installers, the majority of whom have their Alberta Provincial Journeyman Flooring Installer Certification and/or Red Seal Certification in flooring.
Universal Flooring Systems has staff and installation crews who have security clearance through Calgary Police Services to work in high security areas. All Universal staff and subcontractors have Company Identification badges.
Manufacturer Specific Training
As part of our adherence to quality installations, we work with all of our installers to ensure they obtain Manufacturer certifications for the installation of all products where such certification is available. Certifications of staff and installation crews include the following:
- Canadian Construction Association Gold Seal Certification – Project Management – Carpet and Resilient flooring
- Alberta Certified Peer Health & Safety Auditor
- Forbo Master Mechanic Certification
- Forbo Associate Mechanic Certification
- Armstrong Commercial Flooring Certification
- Armstrong Residential Flooring Certification

Universal Flooring believes that support for the Alberta Floor Covering Installer Apprenticeship program is imperative to maintaining high standards of flooring installation in our industry. In an effort to address the shortage of qualified installation mechanics in our province, and the looming retirement of many qualified installers, Universal Flooring continues to hire and train Floor Covering Apprentices, not only to maintain and improve quality installations, but also to provide an opportunity for young people seeking a career in the trades.
