Hardwood Floors is the only magazine serving the wood flooring industry exclusively. When you advertise in Hardwood Floors, you are reaching the key buyer through quality editorial and strong marketing support.
The mission of Hardwood Floors is to promote the hardwood flooring industry as a whole. To the extent possible, ads should reflect this philosophy and not be merely an inventory of products. The publisher reserves the right to refuse any ads not consistent with this policy.
Advertisers and advertising agencies assume liability for all content (including text, representation and illustration) of advertisements printed, and also assume responsibility for any claims arising therefrom made against the publisher.
The publisher reserves the right to reject any advertising he/she feels is not in keeping with the publication's standards. In addition, the publisher does not accept:

Publisher is not bound by any conditions appearing on the space order, contract or billing instructions that conflict with the publisher's policies.
