Trying to maneuver the many options in hardwood flooring all by yourself can become a daunting task. However, with the assistance of a hardwood flooring retailer
with plenty of experience in the industry, you’ll find it a much easier and less frustrating process. We'll tell you, right away, that solid hardwood flooring is never a good idea for below-grade rooms like basements. For these areas, a good alternative would be engineered hardwood, which stands up better in the face of humidity, dampness, and temperature changes. It’s still real wood flooring, but with many benefits of its own.
Solid hardwood flooring must always be acclimated before it can be installed. This helps avoid the risk of warping, buckling, or splitting if installed before the humidity in the new materials matches the humidity in your home. To do so would mean replacing your brand-new floors in less than a year. As always, we advise only professional flooring installations for hardwood flooring, due to its nature. We have all the necessary tools and experience to make sure your flooring is installed to perfection, so schedule yours today.
