Interfloor Backs NICF Competition to Find LVT Fitter Of The Year 2020

The National Institute of Carpet & Floorlayers (NICF) is focusing solely on LVT installation for this year’s competition to find the country’s most skilled flooring fitter. Interfloor is once again proud to sponsor the competition, which is open to everyone and not just members of NICF.

The decision to focus on LVT installation acknowledges its rise in popularity in domestic environments with many homeowners opting for more resilient flooring choices.

The winner, to be crowned at The Flooring Show in Harrogate later this year, will receive prizes including a selection of tools, a trophy and one year’s free Master Fitter NICF membership.

Interfloor Sales Director Gary Cowley said: “We’re delighted to once again be supporting the NICF’s annual competition and welcome the focus on LVT which requires specialist installation skills. We look forward to seeing industry professionals of all ages showcasing their talents.”

Interfloor manufactures a specialist collection of Duralay underlays designed to address common fitting issues associated with LVT applications.  The LVT underlays are quick to fit, easy to work with, and help to reduce the risk of damage to flooring due to uneven sub-floors.
