Hardwood facts just for you

One of the most important pieces of information about hardwood flooring is that it can never be installed below grade. This means basements are never a proper placement for these floors, but any above grade space is a possibility, as long as they aren’t damp or humid. These floors must also be acclimated to your specific space. Acclimation allows the boards to “get used to” your specific humidity levels so they won’t expand or contract too much after installation. The process can take between 24 and 72 hours, depending on your conditions.

One of the most important choices you can make when choosing your flooring is the species. These are rated from softest to hardest and play a huge roll in your flooring. The hardness of the chosen species should match your own unique activity level to keep your floors from wearing out prematurely. The more active the household, the harder the species should be. Private spaces, such as bedrooms and studies, can tolerate a softer wood, as you’ll discuss with your flooring representative.
