Mullican Flooring to be Featured on an Additional Episode of DIY’s “The Vanilla Ice Project”

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Mullican Flooring, a leading manufacturer of quality hardwood floors, is providing flooring for an upcoming episode of this season’s “The Vanilla Ice Project,” a television series on the DIY channel.

The episode, “Upstairs Upgrade,” will air Saturday, April 18, at 10 p.m. EST. Mullican Flooring supplied oak latte solid flooring from the company’s Castillian Collection for the residential renovation project.

Precision manufactured from the finest Appalachian oak, the Castillian Collection is a 3/4-inch product available in a 5-inch width. The collection is offered in rustic, wire-brushed and smooth options.

Together with Mullican’s patented Aqua Shield system, the Castillian Collection features a lifetime moisture warranty. The revolutionary Aqua Shield system includes the application of the Mullican Moisture Mat, the company’s own moisture-retardant underlayment, along with the installation of a Castillian product. When used together, this method allows the bottom of the wood to expand if exposed to moisture, with little to no effect on the floor’s surface.

“We are excited to see our solid Castillian Collection in a second episode of ‘The Vanilla Ice Project,’” says Neil Poland, president of the Johnson City, Tennessee-based company. “The wider width and textured finishes that define the Castillian Collection are an example of popular trends we expect to see more of in 2015.”

Now in its fifth season, “The Vanilla Ice Project” features Robert Van Winkle, a ’90s pop icon who used the stage name of Vanilla Ice. He is a successful real-estate entrepreneur and a remodeling expert, with more than 15 years of hands-on home improvement experience. Along with a crew of contractors, Van Winkle renovates and remodels mansions in the Palm Beach, Florida area, selecting one home each season. The episodes follow Van Winkle through the renovation process room-by-room.

This marks the second episode in which Mullican’s solid Castillian collection has been featured as part of the renovation project.
