ST. LOUIS, Missouri (September 27, 2022) The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has launched the NWFA Engineered Wood Flooring Refinishable Program, which identifies engineered wood flooring products with wear layers thick enough to be sanded and refinished. The program certifies real engineered wood floors to aid manufacturers, distributors, specifiers, and end-users in their decision-making processes.
“The launch of the NWFA’s voluntary certification program is timely, as the marketplace is fraught with confusion about real wood flooring products. Multi-layered constructions and improved visuals currently make it challenging to tell fake wood flooring products from real wood,” says Michael Martin, President & CEO of the National Wood Flooring Association. “This program helps identify real wood flooring that can be refinished and will add value to a home.”
The ability to refinish a wood floor extends its service life, making it a more-sustainable, multi-generational product. The color and sheen can be updated during the remodeling process or to suit the taste of a new homeowner, providing a completely new look.
All types of engineered wood flooring products are eligible to apply to carry the NWFA’s engineered wood flooring refinishable logo. To learn more about joining the program, visit https://nwfa.org/manufacturing or contact John Forbes at email@example.com or 800-422-4556.
The National Wood Flooring Association is a not-for-profit trade organization, with more than 3,000 member companies world-wide, dedicated to educating consumers, architects, designers, specifiers, and builders in the uses and benefits of wood flooring.
