WHY CHOOSE A NWFA CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL?
Southern Oaks Flooring proudly calls three of Nashville's National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) Certified Professionals our own: owner Jared Fitzgerald and crew leaders Joe Wolfe and Dale Alexander are all Certified Sand and Finishers. Jared and Joe are also NWFA Certified Installers; Jared serves as an instructor for the NWFA as well. What does NWFA certification mean? We'll let the the NWFA explain:
"The NWFA's Certification Program was developed to recognize and promote competence of wood flooring professionals throughout the industry.
NWFA Certified Professionals have gone above and beyond to earn their certifications. They have undergone testing to earn their credentials and must complete continuing education requirements in order to maintain their certification. (Certification requires at least two years of experience, two hand-written tests, and two hands-on tests.)
NWFA Certified Professionals are recognized in the wood flooring industry as the best in the business."
In December 2018, Jared was recognized as one of the NWFA's 40 Under 40, one of the industry's "men and women whose career accomplishments have moved them to the forefront. Their professional track records have helped to establish them as some of today’s brightest stars — before their 40th birthday."
