NWFA consumer wood flooring help
ST. LOUIS, Dec. 16, 2010 -- The National Wood Flooring Association has redesigned and relaunched its consumer Web Site, www.woodfloors.org. The site features improved navigation, updated content, and numerous photos highlighting beautiful wood floors installed by NWFA members.

The site helps educate consumers about the many benefits of wood flooring -- its beauty, style, durability, value, and environmental benefits. Consumers can learn about both solid and engineered floors; how strip, plank and parquet floors differ; how different finishes can impact the look and maintenance requirements of the floor; and even how wood floors are environmentally superior to other flooring options. They also can view numerous photos of wood floors identifying the type, style, species, and finish of each floor. Using the Design-a-Room feature, they can even try different wood species in different room settings to get a feel for how they might look in their own home. In addition, when they make the decision to buy, they can search for professional installers in their area using the Find a Professional or Product feature. Searches can be conducted by city, state or province, zip or postal code, mileage, area code, country, or even by individual name or company name.

Take a look at all the benefits of wood flooring by visiting www.woodfloors.org.
