Chris Maskell from the NFCA on their efforts to raise standards in our industry. "...by offering the various construction groups support and correct flooring specifications that represent expected trade practice, we increase the likelihood that a properly installed product will be delivered. Items such as testing requirements, subfloor flatness, floor preparation, indoor environmental conditions, product acclimation and floor protection can be clearly addressed, and responsibilities assigned correctly. This allows good installers to go to work without having to fight for ‘acceptable’ conditions. From the September 2019 Coverings Magazine. NFCA: The right thing — Coverings The National Floor Covering Association (NFCA) promotes industry standards for resilient, carpet, hardwood, laminate, cork and bamboo floor covering installations in Canada.
