Frequently asked questions.
Does Sport Court® sports flooring require a climate-controlled building?
Unlike many other sports surfaces, our gym floors perform well in a wide variety of climate conditions. Extreme humidity, cold temperatures, or heat generally don’t present any problems in playability.
How does a court from Sport Court of Washington, DC compare in cost to other alternatives?
Our courts are typically less expensive than even the basic suspended wood systems, and they compete well with most other synthetic alternatives. Even alternatives like asphalt and concrete that are initially inexpensive have costs that arise over the long term. Over the life cycle, Sport Court’s low maintenance costs and extended durability will continue to save you money year after year after year. Ask your CourtBuilder for more detailed information about the costs for your specific space so that you can accurately compare with other options.
How is Sport Court flooring affected by moisture?
Unlike wood and most other synthetic floors, our indoor and outdoor modular sports floors are virtually unaffected by water. This includes vapor from concrete slabs or subsurface as well as submersion or flood.
Does Sport Court use any hazardous chemicals or materials in its manufacturing process or installation?
No. In fact, we are the only ISO 14001 sports flooring manufacturer in the United States—the international standard for environmental controls.
