For the residents of the city of Valdosta, Georgia, football and community reign supreme. At the heart of the community, the Valdosta YMCA engages the local children, families and adults through its camps, classes and special events. Serving as one of the hubs of neighborhood activities, it was important that the YMCA doors remain open even after a crippling flood in April 2009 that left the entire YMCA under 4 feet of water. One of the hardest hit areas of the building was the Fitness Center, encompassing the cardio area and women’s only section, where the rolls of rubber flooring had bubbled and come unglued.

With the flooring in complete disrepair and members’ health and safety at risk, the YMCA’s Board of Directors enlisted the assistance of Mr. Bob Taggert, CEO of T2Fitness to get the facility back in order. He presented the Board with a variety of flooring options that would fit within the YMCA’s budget, including the possibility of installing rubber roll goods flooring again, when the Board expressed concern about areas that may suffer from future water damage.

Bob recommended Diagonal Tile from Mats Inc. for its durability, dimensional stability and easy maintenance.

Tiles also provided the YMCA with the ability to economically replace small sections if needed. As an added benefit, the combination of colors in Charcoal and Cranberry provided a “pop” of color and pattern, leading to the decision to use Diagonal Tile in other areas of the YMCA, including the after-school rooms.

“In the midst of all the issues in getting the Y back open for business after all the flooding, the flooring selection of Diagonal Tile and its installation was one of the easier decisions,” stated Bob Taggart. “Diagonal Tile was the obvious choice for us to redo several of our rooms.” Diagonal Tile provided the necessary durability under the equipment in the cardio and Women’s Only workout areas, minimized maintenance and repair times in the fitness areas and after-school rooms and offered the opportunity to incorporate color and pattern to create an aesthetically pleasing environment. {Download Case Study}
