The winners of the sixth annual Worst Subfloor Contest were announced at a special Schönox ÖN IT Hour event this week at TISE in Las Vegas. 

This year’s projects were bigger and better than ever with more than 500 pictures submitted and more than 950,000 square feet in projects represented. According to the judges, Sim Crisler, Peter Craig, Lewis Migliore and Paul Pleshek, the competition was fierce and it was a challenge narrowing down the winners. 

“This contest continues to grow year-over-year,” said HPS Schönox Principal Thomas Trissl. “We saw subfloors in every condition you can imagine with entry submissions coming from all over the country. We always look forward to seeing how our products help people take on these tough projects.”
