The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has customized its website to provide more useful information for architects, builders and interior designers. The site offers an array of specifier-friendly features, including tips on selecting wood species and grades, installation techniques, a comprehensive wood flooring library, and guidelines on protecting floors from water and other hazards.

Once visitors have chosen the species that is appropriate for their use, the Design-a-Room section allows them to see different ideas about using strips, planks and other placement possibilities to get the looks they desire. The site also features an Open Forum selection that offers access to a national directory of professionals and an opportunity to have direct online communication with fellow specifiers.
