NWFA installs floors in Habitat for Humanity Home

Home News NWFA installs floors in Habitat for Humanity Home

Prestige Flooring employees recently worked with NWFA to install flooring in a Habitat for Humanity home.

St. Louis, Mo.—Employees of Prestige Flooring located in Fenton, Mo., worked recently with the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) to install 900 square feet of flooring in a Habitat for Humanity home. The home, which is located in University City, Mo., is located near both Prestige’s offices and NWFA’s headquarters.

The crew members installing the flooring each earned their NWFA Certified Professionals installation certification during the project. NWFA’s director of education and certification, Brett Miller, supervised the project and the testing at the habitat site with the assistance of Middle Tennessee Lumber business development and technical advisor, Wayne Lee.

“This is the first time NWFA has combined a service project with certification testing,” said Miller. “It provided the participants with a real-world installation situation, while offering a more realistic testing scenario. Of course, the added benefit is that the labor and materials are being donated toward a good cause.”

Crew members who installed flooring each earned their NWFA Certified Professionals installation certification during the project.

The materials used during the testing/installation were donated by NWFA member companies. Underlayment material was donated by Fortifiber Building Systems Group in Fernley, Nev., and the wood flooring for the project was donated by WD Flooring in Laona, Wis.

NWFA’s next community service project will benefit Operation Finally Home, which benefits wounded veterans. The project will take place on April 19 in Nashville, following NWFA’s Wood Flooring Expo.

NWFACP certification testing will be offered numerous times throughout 2014, and NWFA will continue to pursue other community service options in conjunction with certification testing in the future. The full 2014 training schedule, including certification testing opportunities, is available at nwfa.org/tech-ed-schedule.aspx.
