Yes, and this is necessary because humidity varies from region to region. So, when you select your wood flooring, it probably comes from an area other than yours. The wood will adjust to the weather by expanding when humid and shrinking when it's dry.
Hardwood flooring has a beautiful natural beauty that adds warmth and charm to your home. These floors are classic, durable, versatile, and add value to a property, but we all know that water is wood's enemy, so do your best to avoid moisture and don't skip the acclimation process. Your floors will remain beautiful, and you'll have the best wood flooring for your home.
What is acclimation?
This is an easy but necessary process where opened boxes, or planks left side-by-side on the floor, are left for three to five days in the room where the installation occurs. Climate control is required, so if you don't have an advanced thermostat with climate control, make sure to ask us when you're buying hardwood flooring in Keller, TX. As you know, it can get sweltering and humid at times here.
Is acclimation only necessary for solid wood?
No, engineered wood floors must be acclimated when installed as floating floors. Floating floors mean the planks hover over the subfloor without adhesives or nails and, although engineered wood is more stable, the slightest movement can throw the floor off balance. We take pride in our gorgeous, craftsman-like installations, so we'll avoid even the most remote chance of this happening.
