For several months now, we’ve had a Q&A feature available on our laminate flooring products that allows you to ask about what’s on your mind.

Armstrong has partnered with Homes for our Troops (HFOT), a national nonprofit, non-partisan organization that builds specially adapted homes for the nation’s severely injured veterans.
As the exclusive flooring supplier to HFOT, we are donating floors for approximately 30 homes to be built across the country in 2013. The houses are built at no cost to the veteran through the support of individuals, foundations, and corporate contributors.

For this post, we’ll focus on floors with either a fiberglass backing or a felt back.
