Floor Covering Installers
Floor covering installers include a wide range of construction workers, each specializing in the materials with which they work. Resilient floor layers install, replace, and repair shock-absorbing, sound-deadening, or decorative floor covering such as vinyl tile and sheet vinyl on finished interior floors of buildings. Carpet layers install carpets and rugs, most often wall-to-wall carpeting. Approximately 24,640 carpet installers, 10,020 floor layers, and 30,090 tile and marble setters are employed in the United States.
