Appalachian Lumber earns flooring certification

Appalachian Lumber Co. is the latest company to earn NWFA/NOFMA Mill Certification from the National Wood Flooring Association.

NWFA/NOFMA certification assures a manufacturer’s wood flooring meets or exceeds industry standards for grade, configuration, moisture content, and average board length. Certified mills must meet rigorous production standards and are inspected a minimum of two times per year to ensure consistent grade standards are maintained.

“NWFA is pleased to welcome Appalachian Lumber Co. as the newest NWFA/NOFMA member,” Michael Martin, NWFA President & CEO, said in a statement. “Wood flooring is a big-ticket item for which the buyer wants assurance. The NWFA/NOFMA program continues to go a long way in providing that assurance.”
