It’s all about the flooring….

The Contract Flooring Association is the leading independent professional voice of the contract flooring industry. It aims to support its members in developing sustainable, highly productive businesses that supply and install commercial floor coverings. Recognised as the voice of the industry, we achieve this by providing essential business services and expert information that promote industry standards, professionalism, quality, safety, and training.

Members of the Association include contractors, manufacturers, distributors and consultants — both large and small, operating from locations throughout the UK. The CFA’s membership now accounts for a significant proportion of the UK‘s commercial flooring market.

Most of the UK’s largest and most well-known companies from throughout the flooring sector supply chain are CFA members. With such a high level of commitment from so many companies and individuals, the CFA has a wealth of resources at its fingertips. It is this breadth and depth of information that makes it so much more than just a trade association.

CHOOSE a CFA member – the difference between success and a flooring failure

Flooring is a major element in most contracts and, with more products to choose from than ever before, obtaining the right installer has never been so important.  Flooring is diverse and technically demanding: each product type has its own challenges and options in terms of installation specification. A quality contractor will know the correct adhesive for the flooring product, or the right primer for the subfloor and so will help maximize your investment and minimise flooring failures.

Architects, specifiers and main contractors require the quality of service, installation and support that CFA members can provide. Consequently, many public and private organisations and an increasing number of local authorities are now specifying that CFA members must be used.

All our contractor members have passed the CFA membership vetting process and are annually audited to ensure that they continue to meet our membership criteria. Finding a CFA member couldn’t be easier – click here to search our directory. The CFA provides members with a wealth of knowledge to assist with both flooring installation and running a business, including:

  • British Standard Institution (BSi) Codes of Practice
  • Dispute resolution
  • Documents and templates
  • Employment Law
  • Environmental and Sustainability guidance and support
  • Health and Safety
  • Insurance
  • Technical support and advice
  • Training

Specifying a CFA member for your next flooring project could mean the difference between success — or a flooring failure. Being a CFA member is a mark of quality. It will provide you with peace of mind and reassurance that you are dealing with a quality company.
