“Laminam by Crossville was a great solution to so many issues we were facing in the renovation of this 1980s lobby. The existing travertine slab flooring was solid, but it was dated. Replacing it with another stone flooring was an extremely expensive proposition. Plus, existing accessible entrances did not allow for an overlay of ¾-inch material without major renovation. The scale and use of the space called for large-format, durable material. Laminam offered that in addition to being thin and could easily be overlayed without demolition of the existing finish material.”
