Egan Church Restorations and were hired by St Francis University in Loretto, PA to replace the flooring in the sanctuary, nave, sacristy and narthex of the college chapel.

Next, after all the old tile was removed, we set new mortar and new marble tiles. Spacers were used to insure uniform gaps between tiles were kept.

Next was to remove the old imitation wood flooring under the pews. After removal,, we discovered that the base floor tile was asbestos. To be certain the asbestos was “sealed” we installed a new sub floor before installing the new porcelain tile.
