DescriptionThe continued use of hardwood flooring in urban rehabilitation is being threatened. A study of the influences that determine the choice of flooring indicates that economic, physical, or technological factors dominate. Most factors affecting the use of hardwood flooring are related to cost, availability, and compatibility. Of these factors, time and cost of installation are considered to be most limiting. Product modification, changes in the distribution and supply system, and a well-rounded marketing and merchandising program by the wood flooring industry are recommended.
