For the past 13 years, Jason Laack has been installing floor coverings and ceramic tile for area stores and individuals.
Now, with the Jan. 2 opening of his own store – Laack Flooring Innovations – he’s able to go through the entire planning, design and installation process with his customers.
“I looked at it as the next logical step in my career,” said Laack, a Vandalia native. “It’s been my dream to have my own store, and there was a need for one here.”
He’ll now be able to provide and install all types of floor coverings – carpet, hardwood, laminate, ceramic and luxury vinyl tile. He’ll have a variety of items in stock in his new store, but can order any product to fit the customer’s specifications.
He also does custom ceramic tile installation for showers, floors, walls and backsplashes.
Laack Flooring Innovations is located off of Interstate 70 at the 61 exit, next to Pine Ridge Homes. Hours are 9-5 a.m. on Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Other times are available by appointment.
The telephone number is 283-3863. Serving as office manager is Lavina Copher, who has several years of experience in the floor covering business.
“I get a lot of satisfaction from the custom things we can do for people,” Laack said. “I like seeing a satisfied customer. It makes me feel good when people are happy with the job we’ve done.”
Laack, the son of Dan and Pat Laack, is engaged to Ali Stombaugh. He has an 8-year-old son, Chase, from a previous marriage.
