Description: The hardwood flooring industry is losing a new and vigorous market by default. The mobile-home industry produced over 250 million square feet of single-family housing space last year, and very little of this floor space was covered with hardwood flooring. A preliminary glance at this situation seems to uncover an industry that offers many opportunities for hardwood flooring manufacturers. Why then is so little hardwood flooring being used? To learn more about this growing industry and to discover some of the factors that now limit the use of hardwood flooring, a series of discussions were held with executives in the industry.
