Working with Dad to Learn Craftsmanship

Ian Martins Mon and Dad

Ian Martin’s Mom and Dad that live in Ireland

Ian Martin, founder of Tricolor Flooring started his career at the age of 16 in Ireland. He is fortunate to have a loving father that taught him the trade. Ian’s Father is a Master Craftsman in construction with a sterling reputation.

Ian worked part-time for his Dad while going through grade school by handing tools to him, sweeping the floor, and learning the trade from the ground-up. As time went on, his apprenticeship expanded to learn the trade from Dad by time-tested best practices, and skills passed down to him.

irish flag - ian's county of birthIan also attended an Irish Academy for Flooring and Tiling, as well as, plumbing training for kitchens and bathrooms. His Irish experience spans over 10 years working on large projects such as schools, big companies, and churches to small businesses, shops, apartments, and private homes.

There is nothing like working for Dad, who wants you to succeed and teach you to become the very best in the trade — a Father’s pride in his son’s work is the ultimate accomplishment. Working for Dad was the most demanding employer Ian ever had and the hardest to satisfy. That was the beginning of the superior craftsmanship passed from father to son, not only with skill development, but a mindset to do the job perfectly and with a code of ethics.
