celebrating 60 years!

June 10,  2019

June 10, 2019 marks 60 years of business success for Tri-Co Floors!!

Started by three partners in 1959, Tri-Co Floors originally worked in the housing tract industry which boomed in San Diego during the 1960's and 1970's.  Commercial and industrial buildings became the staple in the 1970's and the following years.

During the early years, the primary installations were Vinyl Asbestos Tile (VAT Floors). This later expanded to installations of Carpet, Ceramic/Stone, Resinous Coatings as well as Specialty Floor and Wall Systems.

As in the beginning, Tri-Co Floors strives to give First Class Service to clients of all sizes. Whether we are servicing a small repair or a job in the millions, clients receive the same respect and attention.

Tri-Co Floors has had continual growth over the past 60 years and we are looking forward to what the future brings! 
Tri-Co Floors was established as a Flooring Contractor in San Diego, California in 1959.  We hold the State of California #185667, one of the oldest existing licenses in the state.

Our biggest distinguishing characteristics from our competition:  
  • We include "normal" floor-prep in our bidding process.  While our competitors charge for floor-prep adds, we do not.  We don't consider picking up a broom and sweeping an extra charge (or light patching) as this is common on every single job site.  By contrast, there are occasionally excessively un-level or cracked concrete slabs.  If that's the case, Tri-Co has  had experience repairing and topping concrete slabs since the 1980's and is one of the most qualified flooring sub-contractors in San Diego to do this type of work.
  • Exceptional Service - Tri-Co's Project Managers take pride in answering a customer's phone call as soon as possible.  If your call goes to voicemail, there is an assistant at the office for you to contact.  Our PM's will follow up and call you back as soon as they can.
  • Night or Weekend Job Installations - Tri-Co's Project Managers are available to deal with job site issues during the  night or on weekends.  Your personal flooring expert will be there to deal with unforeseen conditions or changes that arise. 
  • Experience - Our seasoned management has been through a few recessions, learned from our experiences and continues to strive to grow and thrive in our business relationships. No other local floor covering contractor can say they have continued in business as an independent entity since 1959!

History:
Sometime in the 1970’s, Tri-Co started installing specialty wall systems in various institutions and laboratories. This grew into installing other wall systems that are water-tight with thermal formed inside and outside corners.
In the mid 1980's Tri-Co started installing artistic designs on concrete toppings.  We developed many of the techniques used in the industry today for colorations, embossing and insets.  Some of these techniques became useful in our expansion into concrete grinding and polishing.
Over the years Tri-Co has added many new categories of flooring such as hardwood, ceramic tile/stone, ESD flooring and many other specialty floors to its original work of installing resilient flooring and carpet.
Tri-Co has never been afraid of learning the ropes of a new flooring or wall system. We love the challenge of becoming the first (or next) expert in technical advances of the architectural finishes industry.  We also believe that our willingness to keep advancing and growing along with the desire to provide the best service to clients is the reason we have stayed in business all these years.
Our team takes pride in having the longest lasting commercial flooring company in San Diego and the best reputation!
