Veteran Flooring


Darren Nelson opened his flooring store, Veteran Flooring , in Brighton, Michigan, on March 11, 2020—four days before Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer shut down independent flooring retailers as “non-essential” businesses in response to COVID-19. Nelson served as an airborne combat engineer from for the U.S. Army from 1989 to 1993. After being honorably discharged, he ended up working a variety of sales positions in the flooring industry. He aims to help other veterans like himself gain employment in the service side of the industry.

New Audacity color Legacy Laminate multi width floor installed in a basement home office.
Customers have been loving the stylish colors and realistic looks of this water resistant laminate.
Add the AC4 wear rating for durability and the attached pad to help curb costs, this product is a great value for the visuals it offers.

In this project the customer removed the existing foam gym floor. We then installed a 6mil plastic barrier because it was below grade on concrete.
Customer provided us with some left over paint from his base trim, which allowed us to paint the new shoe molding prior to installation. Making a nicely finished project.

Customer had water damage in an area where we did LVP a few years ago.
They decided to extend the LVP into the carpeted area this round.
A fresh coat of paint and new flooring made a huge difference.
