St. Catherine Laboure Parish in south St. Louis, MO has been planning a gym floor renovation for a couple years now. We were blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the project this summer. Our crews are putting the final touches on it this week. After a few days of cure, the Owner will have full access to resume use.

In addition to the numerous safety upgrades to the surface, the cosmetic appeal here is a major improvement. The existing VCT was slick and hard compared to modern resilient sport floors.
We offer a wide range of resilient wood and synthetic sport surfaces. Give us a call if you have a facility in need of an upgrade or safety improvement. We are happy to meet onsite to evaluate the current condition and discuss solutions!
The #1 issue we see on wood floors, whether in your home or gymnasium, is water. We were called out in early March when water hit the wood gym floor at the St. Charles, MO YMCA resulting in a full replacement.

Everyone involved acted decisively and promptly from the day of occurrence with eyes on the end goal of getting the space back in use to members.
Once given the notice to proceed, we were there within 24 hours and began coordination with Robbins Sport Surfaces for delivery of materials following removal of the floor. Within 5 weeks the floor was removed, replaced, and finish. It took hard work and a dedication to the goal to complete but we were proud to be a part of it.
Keeping all the YMCA facilities across the bi-state area in full operation throughout the year is no easy task. It is simple to forget this as you grow frustrated with a piece of equipment or gymnasium being out of operation. We all appreciate the patience members provide through unexpected repairs like this.
“Should we install the wood floors in the Kitchen?” This question can leave Owners awake at night, but rest assured there is no “right” or “wrong” answer.
Hickory Plank Wood Flooring
Often times the homes layout can help you determine the answer. In the picture above we installed a jobsite finish hickory floor throughout an open floor plan where the Living Room flows through the Breakfast Area and into the Kitchen. The linear pattern of the wood runs parallel with the long dimension of the space. This provided an expanse feel with a uniform look throughout.
Our recommendation is to consider the space, use, and Owner’s wants, then make the decision.
With what might be the biggest logo on a high school floor in the state of Missouri, Van Buren wanted everyone who entered the renovated gym to know they’re back! After suffering a devastating flood last spring, Van Buren Schools was back in action with a new wood and poured gym floor by the fall.

Along with the new floor, we provided the Owner with a floor cover and carpet runners for protection during games. Missouri Floor Co. offers a full line of vinyl, carpet, & tile floor covers to protect your investment. Please call for more info.
Fredericktown H.S. had dreams become a reality this past summer as they converted their existing gymnasium into a beautiful new sports venue. There is no doubt whose “house” you’re in when you play here!
Gym Floor Renovation Project
The original surface was installed by Missouri Floor Company years ago with our Owner actually being part of the install crew. It goes without saying there was a lot of pride all around with a history like this!
A wood floor in a gymnasium can last close to a lifetime if kept dry. The problem is mother nature and other things beyond our control. Roof issues led to water damage of the gym floor so we were called in to repair and refinish the floor.

Though the Owner is inconvenienced with the down time of repairs, they often end up with an opportunity to update the court layout and logos. If your gym floor has current or past water issues, call today and we can assist in both evaluation and solutions (314)432-2260.
Jobsite finished white oak flooring in St. Charles,
Homeowner’s often try to get too creative in their search for the “perfect” floor. The picture above is a classic Select White Oak strip floor we installed throughout the Kitchen and Breakfast Room. The wood was sanded and finished onsite and stained to the Owner’s color selection.
Here, the Homeowner needed the floor to be functional enough for a young family yet elegant enough to catch the eye.
It’s always bittersweet when a floor with such history gets torn out, but we are underway with the replacement of the wood gym floor in the Denver Miller Gym at Kirkwood High School.

While the kids enjoy the summer break, it is time to get down to business here at Missouri Floor Company. Shrinking breaks mean shorter duration’s to get full replacements delivered on time. We try to be proactive and sequence the projects within the time frames allotted. It takes communication, experience, and a solid relationship with the manufacturers to bring it all together on time.
Multipurpose Gymnasium Wood Floor
Missouri Floor Co. recently completed an installation of a new wood athletic floor in the gym at Arthur Christian School. What started as a simple phone conversation about budgets for a floor in their facility turned into a beautiful project within a years time. It’s always a good feeling to be part of a great plan that comes together.
After water damaged the existing wood gym floor at the nearby U City Rec Center, Missouri Floor Company was called to evaluate the damage. Within 24 hours we were there to begin monitoring the damage. The floor ended up being a total loss which only started the process for further losses to the Owner due to the gym being shut down during replacement.

We got creative using features available in the industry (Robbins XLplus “presanded” maple) and our crews committed to overtime to help expedite the process. The floor was turned back over to the Owner more than a week early to get them back in action! A big “Thank You” goes out to the facility for choosing Missouri Floor Company to tackle the project.
