What Makes Us Different? Our Quality, Pricing and Product Knowledge

We only work with great manufacturers to ensure that our customers have peace of mind.

IndusParquet

One of our top selling manufacturers of exotic woods is IndusParquet, who offer such styles like  Brazilian Cherry, Tigerwood, Brazilian Rosewood and Amendoim.  With IndusParquet, there are over 20 different quality control checks your wood goes though before it ever comes into your home. No other exotic manufacturer  that can say that.  We go the extra mile to bring you the best quality. Stop by our showroom to learn more about how this exotic manufacturer is going a step above the rest to make a high quality, long-lasting product.

Below Indusparquet shows the layered process of finishing and coating the hardwood flooring:

Mirage

It is important to point out that not all wood is created equal. Just because you have bought the same species of wood does not mean it was created through the same high quality manufacturing process.  For example, you may purchase an inexpensive oak or maple species that will last you five years, but then  dent or scratch easily. The process that wood takes through manufacturing is important. Mirage flooring is a manufacturer that we trust to complete that manufacturing process correctly.  With Mirage, oak or maple flooring can last you a lifetime, due to their use of the best finishes in the industry, making their products stronger than any other product in the market.

As a Mirage dealer in Laurel Maryland, we want to show you  what Mirage Flooring has to say about their product:

"Quality hardwood flooring... the difference stands out!"

 It’s easy to believe that all hardwood floors are similar, but don’t be mistaken. Only floors that meet the most demanding criteria are recognized as high quality.

Before selecting the floor for your project, ask the dealer to open a box in front of you to check for these qualities:

  Respect for Grade: Make sure the grade you chose with the help of samples is really what’s in the box. Every grade has its own characteristics that help create the look and style you’re seeking.

Straight boards of uniform thickness: Lay a few boards on the floor and put them together. They should fit together perfectly and you shouldn’t feel any variation in thickness

Small and consistent V joints: When put together, the boards form V joints where they meet. These joints must not be too deep, or dirt and dust can collect and make the floor hard to care for.

Uniform finish, even in the joints: The durability of the finish is determined by the quality of the polyurethane and the process used to apply it. The bottom of the joints must also be perfectly coated with varnish or it will collect dirt and water, causing it to darken prematurely.

Highest Standard of Finish: Finish needs to be applied in the right amount, not too thin and not too thick, in order to avoid a plastic effect and let the beauty of the wood show through.

Consistent color from one box to the next: If the wood is stained, the stain should reach the bottom of the joints to ensure an even floor color. Check that the color is consistent from one board to the next and from one box to the next.

UV protection to fight yellowing: Bright light and sun can cause wood from naturally pale species to yellow. UV protection in the polyurethane finish can reduce and slow this process down. 

Mirage: Guaranteed Peace of Mind. Unmatched Value.

Cutting methods

There are two main cutting methods for the hardwood portion of an engineered floor. Only the dry sawn method ensures a flawless appearance and the superior quality worthy of Mirage.

Dry sawn: Hardwood precisely sawn in desired thickness of plank.

  •  Same look as ¾ in. (19 mm) solid hardwood flooring
  • Color variations, uniformity, and natural grain beauty of the species is preserved
  • Each board is unique, no repetitive pattern
  • Ultra-thick wear layer
  • Can be sanded three to five times, as needed

The competition:

Rotary peeled: Log is boiled and then peeled using a rotary cut (method used to make plywood)

  • Repetitive patterns similar to plywood
  • Ultra-thin wear layer can show cracks, nicked corners, and other imperfections
  • Can be sanded only once, sometimes not at all
  • Wood is softened by soaking it in a solution, which tends to yellow the surface"
     
     

EASY CARE STEPS FOR CLEANING PREFINISHED HARDWOOD FLOORS:

DO:

  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Vacuum, sweep or dusts mop your hardwood floor once a week, or more, if needed. The vacuum head must be brush or felt, and a wand attachment is preferable. Do not use the beater bar.
  • Use interior and exterior doormats at entrances to collect dirt & moisture to prevent it from being tracked onto the floor.
  • Area rugs are recommended in front of kitchen sinks, at all pivot points and within high-traffic areas. The rugs must be made of a breathable material to prevent moisture entrapment.
  • Place runners and area rugs (with slip-resistant backings) along high-traffic areas.
  • Keep animal nails trimmed to prevent finish scratches.
  • To prevent surface damage avoid rolling heavy appliances and furniture on the floor. Use plywood, hardboard or appliance lifts, if necessary.
  • Use furniture leg protector pads under all furniture legs.
  • Replace hard, narrow furniture rollers with wide rubber rollers.
  • Keep the relative humidity in your home between 35% and 55%.
  • Protect your floor from direct sunlight.

DON'T:

  • Do not use any of the following products (or products similar in nature) on your floor: ammonia based cleaners, acrylic finishes, wax based products, detergents, bleach, polishes and oil soaps, abrasive cleaning soaps or acidic materials such as vinegar.
  • Do not use Steam Cleaners on hardwood floors. This will void hardwood warranty.
  • Do not allow water to stand on your floor for any length of time – wipe up immediately.
  • Do not walk across your floor in poorly maintained shoes with heel taps, spike heels or with any sharp object protruding from your shoe.
  • Do not allow furniture to rest on the floor on small metal tips or hard domes.
  • Do not use rubber, foam back or plastic mats as they may trap moisture and possibly discolor your floor.
  • Do not use vacuums with beater bars or hard heads.

HARDWOOD FLOOR CARE QUICK FIX TIPS

Spills and Tracked-in Dirt

  • Clean immediately.
  • Apply Hardwood Floor Cleaner lightly to the surface and wipe with a sponge mop or a soft cloth.
  • Excess cleaner that does not evaporate immediately should be dried with a clean towel. No rinsing is necessary.

Spots Caused by Food, Water or Animals

  • Apply Hardwood Floor Cleaner to a clean soft cloth.
  • Rub the area to remove the stain or spot.
  • Stubborn spots may require additional cleaning with mineral spirits, followed by cleaning with Hardwood Cleaner

Grease/Lipstick/Crayon/Ink Spots/Rubber Heel Marks

  • Apply Hardwood Floor Cleaner to a clean soft cloth.
  • Rub the area to remove the stain or spot.
  • If stain remains, rub with a cloth dampened with mineral spirits and then clean the area with a Hardwood Floor Cleaner.

Chewing Gum, Candle Wax

  • Apply a sealed plastic bag filled with ice on top of the deposit.
  • Wait until deposit becomes brittle enough to crumble off.
  • After deposit has been removed, clean entire area with Hardwood Floor Cleaner

Minor Abrasions/Scratches

  • Use Touch-Up Kit in smaller areas.
  • Apply Hardwood Floor Finish when larger areas are reconditioned.

Deep Scratches/Gouges

  • Individual planks or strips that are heavily gouged or damaged can be replaced by a professional flooring installer.
  • If needed, the entire floor can be refurbished by applying one or more coats of a Hardwood Restore Floor Finish

 


Things to Know About Hardwood & Your Maryland Home

1) All  woods expand and contract year round. Some woods have less movement then others, therefore, it is important to buy a good quality wood.  Solid woods on average expand and contract 10 to 14% per year vs. engineered wood which is closer to 1 to 4%. A good engineered wood is a more stable product.

2) Don't say no to a product just because a product is an engineered wood. A good engineered floor can be sand and finished as many times as solids. (Just because the floor is thicker does not mean its better.) 

3) With the new aluminum oxide finishes, you probably  will never sand & finish your wood. Don't worry about something that you might do in 20 years. 

4) Your house is always in process of expanding and contracting causing gaps between your planks. This  is normal and can be fixed easily by using putty. Using putty is an excepted way to cover gaps between planks if needed.

5) Everyone worries about the color of the wood and style matching that of their railings, and so will you.  After the job is done, 99% our customer are satisfied with the end result.

6) Wood floors will scratch. They are suppose to. Some scratch less than others and some show scratches more easily than others,  but the bottom line is- they all scratch. Even the top-of-the-line quality woods scratch, just look at it as the scratches giving your floor character and personality. The floors will last you a lifetime.

7) Gaps and scratches tend to show a bit more on darker woods and woods with a more unified look (e.g. black colors).

8) Squeaking happens when the subfloor loosens up from the joints due to expanding and contracting. In some spots it is seasonal.  This squeaking is  normal and a temporary fix is to put nails in the wood to hold it in place.

9) Keep your humidity level 35%-55% year round to avoid major gaps. In the northeast area we experience cold, dry winters and hot, humid summers. If you see gaps don't worry, it will come back together. Wood is a live product that absorbs humidity and reacts to season just like your house.

Thank you so much! It was very nice working with you and your employees! I love that Mr. Ash (the owner) came by our house multiple time through the entire process to check and make sure everything had been done to his standards! The contractors that worked on the Kitchen were friendly, Professional, on time, and finished exactly when they said they would!

We will definitely use you all again for any home improvement projects we do in the future! I am completely confident in referring PriceCo Floors, Inc. to all of our friends and family!

Good Luck and keep up the good work!!!!

We couldn't be happier with the hardwood floors and carpeting that PriceCo Floors installed in our house. PriceCo Floors' prices, quality of work and customer service are outstanding. We would recommend them to anyone who needs flooring. Thanks again PriceCo Floors for a great flooring experience."

-Sincerely, The Gifford Family Columbia, MD

"We first used Priceco Flooring when we were selling our house in Laurel, Maryland. Ash was very professional and was quite on target in helping us to pick the right carpet to get the house sold. When we were looking to finish our basement in Ashton, Maryland, we immediately called Priceco. The quality of the granite and carpet that we had installed was excellent and the pricing was competitive. Ash spent a great deal with us to assure that we would like the final product. His advice from his experience is unmatched."

-Mark & Terri Jenkins Ashton, Maryland

"I've worked with PriceCo Floors since 2004 and they have always done a tremendous job for me. I am a Realtor, an investor, and a homeowner. They have professionally installed flooring for many of my clients, in my rentals, and most importantly in my own home. Their work and products are top quality. PriceCo has always done an outstanding job at a competitive price and have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Over the years, working with such a personable and professional company as PriceCo Floors has kept me a very loyal customer. I wouldn't shop anywhere else."

- Jillian DaCosta

"I had hardwood floors in the hallway and kitchen and I wanted the same hardwood in the family room, living room and dinning room. I did a lot of research and had several large companies come in to do estimates. No one could match their hardwood to our existing hardwood floors and their estimates were really expensive. I did a google search for hardwood stores in Laurel and found out about PriceCo Floors. I went in there and was very pleasantly surprised. They have a very large selection of various hardwood and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. One of the staff members came by and immediately was able to match their hardwood to my existing hardwood floor. In addition, it was very reasonably priced. They installed the floors within a week and it looks gorgeous!!! It's exactly what I wanted! I'm so happy I went to them. I recommend them highly!"

-Julia, Laurel MD

“Ash and his crew did a fabulous job with our new floors. Not only did he help us to choose the correct flooring for our bedrooms, he gave us a fair price. His crew came on time, and completed the project in one day. I will definitely use PriceCo Floors again in the future for any flooring needs.” Sincerely, Karen Jury "Thank you very much for the excellent service we recieved from Priceco Floors. Our new basement is now perfect with new Ceramic Tile floors and wall to wall carpet. Having you come to our home and help us select the right floor for us on a personal level made it an easy and stress free experience. Thank you again Priceco Floors!"

-Kim

"We have used PriceCo Floors twice in the last few years. The first time we had them come in and replace out family room carpeting with hardwood floors and match the hardwood to the existing hardwood flooring already in the house. They did an absolutely fantastic job and so we went back to them when we needed our basement carpeting replaced. Again we were extremely pleased and would highly recommend them. Ash Azari was fantastic to work with on both occasions."

~Norma Lee and Bill Buzbee

"Ash, Recently, due to the fine help from your dad, Hamid, yourself and three fine crews, Priceco Floors installed new granite countertops, new ceramic floors and wall to wall carpet in the upstairs and stairways of our Rockville home. We couldn't be more pleased. The advice on tops, floors and carpet was excellent while still letting Karen choose colors and styles. The granite tops make the cherry kitchen cabinets look new and the ceramic floors make a plain room seem elegant. The recommendation to use the upgraded carpet pad works very well - the excellent pad feels even plusher using it. We have ordered a new kitchen table set and will send pictures as soon as it is in. Thanks again."

-Jon and Karen Weston Rockville, MD

"My husband and I want to thank you for the beautiful hardwood flooring that we got from your company today. From the moment I walked into your store to the end of the installation of the floors, I have been impressed. I was impressed with your level of knowledge, as well as with your level of patience. You came out to our house to show us floor samples. Most people don't do that nowadays. I would consider myself to be a very "picky" person, and I expect perfection when I have work done to my house. Often times, I am very, or somewhat disappointed in the workmanship that I receive. This time, I was extremely happy with the outcome. Your installers were excellent! They were polite, patient, and professional. Every request I made was completed, no matter how small or tedious it may have been. Their workmanship and skills were superb. Beautifully done! Thank you again Ash!"

-Sincerely, Amy and Hector Velez Laurel, MD

"I can't tell you how happy I am that Brenda told me about PriceCo Floors. Finding good and reliable contractors seems to be a bit of a trick these days, and I'd like to offer my compliments to PriceCo for providing wonderful service and a great product at very competitive prices. The wood floors look beautiful; I'm glad you recommended the style we chose. Hats off to your installation guys who showed up right when they said they would and did a great job installing the floors and carpet. Next is the kitchen and family room, and you can be sure I'll give you a call when the time comes. Thanks again."

-Burl Dicken

"After having wall-to-wall carpeting for 25 years, we decided to replace it with hardwood floors in the family room, foyer, hallway, and kitchen. We visited several stores in the area, and PriceCo offered us the best price and the friendliest service by far. Ash and his dad are a joy to work with; they were very patient and helpful as we kept changing our minds about the exact shade. The crew did a fantastic job of installing the floors and leaving everything clean and neat. A large amount of carpeting, ceramic tile, plywood, and two layers of linoleum had to be removed from the floors and hauled away, and they did it all in one day! We are very pleased with the final product, and have received many compliments from friends and neighbors. This has greatly increased the value of our home, and it’s a joy to look at and walk on our new floors every day. We definitely plan to use PriceCo again for additional work, such as upgrading the kitchen cabinets and counters. We strongly recommend PriceCo to anyone interested in improving their home at a reasonable price. This company takes great pride in their workmanship instead of just trying to make a quick buck. It is one of the most positive experiences we’ve ever had with a company or contractor."

-Tony and Mary Glaros Laurel, MD

"Ash, We are very pleased with the job your company did with yesterday’s hardwood installation in our dining room and family room. The floors look great. Your installers were very professional, courteous and completed the job in a timely fashion. The also cleaned up behind themselves and moved our furniture back into position leaving the house in great condition. So far, everything about the job was “as advertised” and we plan on contacting you when we are ready for further improvements to our home. I can't say enough about Ash and his crew. What makes these guys stand apart from their competition is their determination to make sure you are 100% satisfied with their product and their service. Regardless of who you hire there will always be challenges and issues to a job. Ash and his folks strive to catch these before their customers do and surprised me by checking each others work to ensure their success. Ash's theme throughout our whole project was to ensure my satisfaction and he met that goal completely. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the hardwood flooring and the carpeting I purchased from you in July. I have received numerous complements on the quality of your products and I am more than pleased with everything. I have recommended your store to everyone I meet who is looking for carpeting, flooring and kitchen replacement. Thank you and Hamid for the respect and professioanlism you both exhibit. I will be returning."

-Edmunds Family

"Ash, Thank-you for the beautiful job you all did with the new carpet for our main entrance and church offices! The carpet looks great and we couldn't be happier! Have anyone looking to use you on a project drop by and see for themselves! Thank for your flexibility in getting the job done in time for church on Sunday!"

-Sincerely, Cherilyn Hostetler, First United Methodist Church of Laurel, MD

"Dear Ash and all the others at Priceco Floors:

I want to let you how pleased we are with both our carpeting and our new kitchen! These beautiful improvements make it feel like we are living in a brand new home. It was such a good experience working with you and your installers. Both jobs were done very professionally and with great care. The best part was working with your family – you made us feel so comfortable as we went through all the phases of design, selection and installation of our new kitchen. Please thank everyone for us."

-Sincerely,Susan and Dennis S

"First, I must admit that I was skeptical about the other testimonials I read on PriceCo's website. After taking a chance and contracting with Hamid, I emphatically agree with the other customers. My installation was on time, done professionally, and competitively priced. I had three price quotes done and PriceCo came in under the other quotes and was able to fit the installation into my schedule. Because the carpet was being installed into a rental condo, I asked for quotes for builder's grade carpet. The two other companies gave me what I asked for, but Hamid encouraged me to choose a better quality carpet.Without even seeing the other quotes, his pricewas below the others. He did not nickle and dime me about moving the furniture, or if they removed the old carpet the pricewould be oneamount,or tell me I had to pay for measuring. I was givena one hour window for them to arrive not half of the day.

My decision to use PriceCo was solidified when the realtor who willbe managing the property saw it and said, "The paint job looks really nice and the new carpet is great. I have never seen builder's carpet of that quality before." That's when I knew I made the right decision. I thought I was taking a chance with PriceCo but in reality, they are a sure thing."

Resilient Flooring

Buying Tips for Vinyl Flooring

The new generation of vinyl floors have new finishes, different construction and new types of backing. They are designed for better wear, clearer pattern definition, and easier to maintain and install. Manufacturers have gone primarily to cushioned products with wider widths to reduce the number of seams.

New innovations in backing have made the today’s cushion vinyl floors more resistant to rips, tears and back staining. Most residential sheet flooring offer no-wax performance and a wide variety of colors and patterns–more than any other flooring product and generally speaking, cushion vinyl flooring is the most economical of all flooring choices.

Some products are designed to help you reduce subfloor preparation costs
Next to ceramic tile, vinyl flooring installation demands properly prepared subflooring. Most cushion vinyl products are thin and when they are installed with a full spread of adhesive over a poorly prepared subfloor, irregularities can telegraph through. New products designed for perimeter or loose lay installation will greatly reduce the effects of subfloor irregularities while lowering subfloor preparation costs. In fact, many of these products can be installed over you existing flooring.

Luxury Vinyl Products
Manufacturer’s have raised vinyl flooring to a whole new level when it comes to luxury vinyl product offerings. New technologies have led to greater realism in design and structures every bit as rugged as older inlaid products, and all of this without giving up the easy no-wax maintenance that is desired.

Cork Flooring

Buying Tips for Cork Flooring

Why Buy Cork Flooring?
Cork is a progressive design option that offers high-end durability. Cork is a highly resilient flooring because it has elasticity and gives on impact. This makes cork a great option for comfort and sturdiness.

Cork is also known for its abundant design options. The versatile material allows for stains in many shades and it can also be painted. You can have the benefits of cork and still match any décor you choose.

Cork Flooring is Good for the Environment
If you are looking for an environmentally friendly option, cork is the perfect choice. This is because cork can be harvested from a tree without damaging the tree or stunting its growth. This makes cork the most naturally renewable resource for flooring.

What Type of Cork is Best?
It really all depends on your needs. Use plank-shaped cork if you are installing over existing flooring, but use tile-shaped if you need to glue it down. We can help you determine which is best.

Cork texture will greatly impact the look of your cork flooring. Small granules give your floor that traditional cork flooring look you are likely used to. A peeled cork texture gives it a beautiful natural cork look.  There are many other textures and designs to choose from. Contact us today and we'll make sure you get the right one for your home's needs.

Bamboo Flooring

Buying Tips for Bamboo Flooring

Why Buy Bamboo Flooring?
Bamboo flooring is one of the best ways to get a combination of beauty and durability. It is most known for its strength and stability, making it a great choice for flooring that lasts for many years. Although bamboo is actually a type of grass, it can be harder than oak, giving you a long lasting material.

Bamboo vs. Hardwood
It has a lot of the same benefits of hardwood plus a few more. It has less risk of damage due to expansion or contraction. It is also particularly resistant to insects and mildew growth. Bamboo is one the most recent materials to be used as flooring, but it is also one of the most environmentally friendly. It is a rapidly renewable resource that can be harvested every 5-7 years. An oak tree takes 60 years or more before it’s ready to be re-harvested. This makes bamboo a great choice for environmentally conscious consumers who are concerned about sustainability.

What Type of Bamboo to Buy?
There are a few color options to choose from to get the look you want. You can do a natural bamboo color are get a direct print bamboo to create bamboo flooring that looks like an entirely different type of floor.

There are different grain types for different looks. Vertical grain gives you a uniform, smooth look while horizontal grain helps display the bamboo's random growth rings. The hardest of the grain types is strand-woven which also gives a random look revealing the natural character of your bamboo floors. Contact us today, so we can help you make the right decision when purchasing your new flooring.

Buying Tips for Laminate Flooring

Why has this new product category been such a hit?
Laminate products feature a newer type of wear surface that resists scratching, denting, and burns better than many existing products. They also offer extended product warranties to back up these claims for superior performance. Much of the styling is done in wood grain patterns taking advantage of popularity of hardwood. Still other styling resembles natural stone like you would find in ceramic tile. Laminates offer a popular trade-off for people wanting wood or ceramic.

Laminate floors are more scratch resistant than most regular hardwood finishes and easier to clean than the grout lines associated with ceramic tile installations. Laminates also require less demanding preparation of the subfloor because they are not glued directly to the subfloor. Most of these products are snapped together over foam padding. This feature has made laminate flooring popular in areas where vinyl flooring traditionally was installed.

Laminate flooring in wet areas
Many of the products are okay for wet areas, but the core is made of wood fiber. Look for products that have warranties, that cover water damage. All of them will insist on proper installation.

Finishing touches are important
Look for products that can provide the needed accessories like reducer strips, stairnose, and even air vents that either match or coordinate with the flooring.

Buying Tips for Hardwood Flooring

Factory Finish vs. Custom Sand & Finish on Site
Factory finishing offers many nice advantages. Factory finished flooring is inspected for defects at the mill so you receive first choice every time. Factory finished flooring usually installs more quickly and without the dust and odors that are involved with on-site finishing.

However, even though factory finished flooring comes in a variety of colors, on-site finishing allows for closer color match with existing woodwork or cabinets. Both factory finishes and on-site finishes are available in either high gloss or matte. Both types have exciting new finishes developed with space age technology and they require no waxing.

Engineered hardwood flooring
Prior to the development of engineered hardwood flooring, hardwood products could not be installed on slab or in your basement without a special subfloor system. Now you can enjoy real hardwood flooring in those areas without all that fuss and expense.

A special cross-ply construction eliminates the problem of expansion and contraction usually associated with solid hardwood. Don’t become overly concerned with thinner or thicker top wood layers associated with engineered products because it’s the finish you are walking on. Generally speaking you won’t need to re-sand and finish these products.

Special considerations when selecting hardwood flooring:
*Always buy brand name products
*Learn the difference between wood species and their characteristics
*Learn what will suite your life style

Buying Tips for Ceramic Tile

The correct subfloor structure is critical to performance
Ceramic tile, more than any other form of flooring, requires the proper subfloor system and setting materials. A double subfloor system with the total thickness of 1-1/4″, over floor joists 16″ on center is required. The top subfloor layer should be exterior grade plywood or an underlayment specifically designed for ceramic tile installation like cementous backerboard. Special setting materials are available which will allow ceramic tile installations over existing floors that are solid and already meet the above requirements. Failure to provide a sturdy base can cause grout to crack and release or tile to crack.

Although many ceramic tiles look the same, there are quality differences
The quality of raw materials, the firing process, and the sophistication of glazing applications that create realism will determine the quality of the finished product. These quality differences are often reflected in the price.

Selecting the right surface glaze is an important step when selecting floor tile
Floor tiles are rated for glaze wear and slip resistance, which are important factors to consider. Glaze ratings should exceed 3 for residential applications with the exception of bath areas that can use tiles rated 2. Tiles with a slip resistant rating of 0.5 or better should work well in most indoor residential applications.

Use caution when selecting tile for installations outdoors. Unglazed quarry tiles, tiles with heavily textured surfaces, or porcelain paver tiles, all with slip resistant ratings of 0.6 or greater are possibilities. They must also be frost resistant.

Buying Tips for Carpet

Don’t take the quality of your carpet cushion lightly

The performance of many carpets will hinge on the performance of the cushion. Spending a few extra dollars on cushion can mean extra years of performance for your carpet. Some carpet warranties also hinge on the grade of cushion you select.

Don’t judge the quality by feel alone

Thick and luxurious carpet can fool you at times. Determine the performance you want and the conditions effecting your carpet.

There is no substitute for a knowledgeable sales person

There are a wide variety of issues to resolve in buying the best carpet for your needs. The performance and quality characteristics of carpet vary more widely than that of other flooring materials and a knowledgeable sales person will help you match up your performance needs.
