Students at the Derr Flooring/NWFA Factory Finished School glue down Bruce Turlington Plank.

Derr Flooring Co. recently sponsored two factory-finished hardwood flooring installation schools. Sixty-five students attended the events and received both hands-on and classroom instruction on the proper methods of installation, repair and maintenance of hardwood flooring.

Steve Seabaugh, technical director of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), was the primary instructor for the schools. He was assisted by Rusty Swindoll, NWFA assistant technical director; Tom Peotter, technical director, Oshkosh Floor Designs; Mark Lamanno, regional trainer, Armstrong Floor Products; Greg Bethune, regional manager, Bona Kemi; and Rick Holden, Dave Balasa and Mike Standen of Derr Flooring.
