WHAT?
NWFA recently announced the revised categories for our annual Wood Floor of the Year awards. The revised categories will generate more diversity with contest submissions by focusing on specific skill sets taught during NWFA hands-on training events.

The new categories are as follows:

  • Best Restoration/Makeover: Entries in this category include all types of restorations, repairs, or refinishes, in either a residential or commercial application. Applications can include job site finished, manufacturer finished, solid or engineered wood flooring.
  • Best Color & Finish Application: Entries in this category include jobsite applied applications of dyes, reactive colorants, layered colors, and faux finishing.
  • Best Circular/Curved Application: Entries in this category include any circular shape within a flooring system, such as circles, ovals, curves, and bent material. Applications can include job site finished, manufacturer finished, solid or engineered wood flooring.
  • Best Parquet/Inlay Application: Entries in this category include any parquet pattern, medallion, marquetry, or intarsia inlay. CNC and laser cut applications are acceptable, but must be identified.
  • Best Textured Wood Application: Entries in this category may include scraped, wire-brushed, distressed, or any surface that is not traditional flat. Applications can include job site finished, manufacturer finished, solid or engineered wood flooring.

WHY?
NWFA’s Wood Floor of the Year awards are the one and only competition of this nature recognized in the wood flooring industry. Take advantage of this admirable opportunity to gain recognition as a skilled craftsman in our industry.

WHO?
You! All NWFA members are encouraged to participate and submit their one-of-a-kind work to be recognized.
