Hardwood floors are an investment. With proper maintenance, they will last for generations. It is clearly the best quality for value option.

Where Can/Can’t I Install Hardwood In My Home?

Hardwood can be installed in any room except a full bath. With the variety of products available and choices of installation options, hardwood flooring can now be installed in any room of your home. The only thing you must take into consideration is whether the floor will be installed on-, above- or below-grade. For example, because of potential moisture problems, solid hardwood is not recommended for installations below grade, such as in basements. Engineered products, which are dimensionally stable, are better choices for this area.

Will My Floor Have Cracks/Gaps In It?

No matter the installation, it’s common for cracks to appear in floors, especially with wider planks, due to shrinkage and expansion throughout the year. Small cracks are not harmful for the floor and most will only appear seasonally due to changes in humidity levels. In order to reduce or eliminate the chances of your floor cracking, try to maintain a humidity level between 45% and 55% year round. Air conditioning or a dehumidifier during the summer months and a humidifier during drier seasons help keep humidity levels more stable.
