Most flooring failures result from failing to follow the manufacturer or NWFA wood flooring installation guidelines. Inspectors Terry and Kevin Weinheimer have trained with the National Wood Flooring Association.
It is the responsibility of each installer to follow the manufactures guidelines or those of NWFA, whichever the manufacturer states.

As part of the inspection process, Certified Flooring Inspectors determine if installation guidelines were followed. Many installations fail with floors not installed to manufacturer or NWFA standards.
