Roy Reichow, the founder of National Wood Floor Consultants Inc. (NWFC) and former NWFACP past board chairman, passed away on Tuesday, September 13. Reichow had five decades of experience in the wood flooring industry and was the first of three people to acquire all NWFA education credits and all five certifications, including Inspector and Commercial Inspector.
In addition to serving on the NWFACP board of directors as chairman, Reichow was also a past NWFA Regional Instructor, Inspector School instructor, Technical Committee chairman, Inspector Committee chairman, Radiant Heat chairman, and contributor for NWFA Installation Guidelines and Hardwood Floors magazine.
Shocked to read of Roy’s death. Our first floor with Roy was at our Edina Indian Hills home, went on to do two more Lake Superior homes and my daughters Deephaven home
We held Roy with the greatest regard, as a craftperson and as a person.
