Most wood flooring failure result from failing to follow NWFA industry or manufacturers wood flooring installation guidelines. As National Wood Flooring Association trained Flooring Inspectors, Terry and Kevin Weinheimer are regularly asked to determine if the wood floor installation guidelines were adhered to. Before installing in floor, read and follow the manufacturers installation standards.
We encourage all wood flooring installer, sales people and dealers to read the NWFA wood flooring installation guidelines. The National Wood Flooring Association is the flooring industry standard. Visit NWFA an learn about courses and technical information available to members. Always make sure you have the latest NWFA Standards.
These guidelines are industry-accepted standards for hardwood flooring techniques. The flooring manufactures guidelines take precedence over NWFA standards. Many flooring manufactures defer to NWFA standards.NWFA-Install-Guidelines-
