USG and Shaw Floors Partner to Restore Rossville, GA VFW Post 3679 Hall
For more than a century, The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) organization has worked tirelessly to build a community for veterans and their families in America. From fundraisers to bingo nights, local VFW hall events are at the heart of that effort. When it was discovered that the VFW hall in Rossville, Georgia, was in need of a new floor, USG and Shaw Industries – both proud supporters of the veteran community – joined forces to help.
The floor of VFW Post 3679 was in a state of disrepair. Large cracks and broken tiles made it impossible to hold community events or rent the facility out to raise funds. In addition, the state of the building was turning new members away and the community was shrinking as a result. With no budget for repairs, Shaw Industries and USG donated materials, time and labor to resurface the floor and restore the VFW hall.
Shaw chose USG Durock™ Brand Quik-Top™ Self-Leveling Underlayment for the job. It has the highest compressive strength in the industry (10,000 psi), and with no mechanical preparation needed, the subfloor was ready for flooring (Patcraft’s® Timber Grove II 20 mil LVT) the next day. In just two days, the teams delivered a high-performance flooring solution for the deserving veteran community.
