If you want to keep your hardwood-framed bathroom floors in style, you may need to install new ones.
That’s because the US government has announced plans to retrofit hardwood and ceramic floors to comply with a new federal law.
US hardwood manufacturers have until 2031 to comply.
But in order to be retrofitted, hardwood must be able to withstand temperatures that are above 50C (104F).
So many manufacturers, including Johnson & Johnson, Sears, and Lowe’s, have said they will not retrofit the hardwood.
“If you want us to be able fit these hardwood frames into the new houses, we will not,” Johnson &s; Johnson’s president of residential building systems, Brian Jenson, told the Associated Press news agency in an interview.

But because hardwood can be extremely hard, it’s best to get the new flooring that meets the US’s hardwood requirements.
