Are you considering hardwoods for your space? Here are a few things to consider when purchasing your new floors.



Can Humidity Damage My Hardwood Floors?

While most wood products can benefit from humidity, there is a specific range of humidity for hardwood floors. The relative humidity of a house with hardwood floors should range from 35% to 60%.


During the winter, the air in your home can be dry, leading to gapping between your floorboards as the planks shrink. In humid months, swelling can cause your hardwood planks to buckle and cup.

Are There Different Types of Hardwood Flooring?

When selecting hardwood floors, there are various choices to compare.


Different hardwood species differ in strength and color, so if you need a floor to stand up to heavy foot traffic or children and pets, choose a more solid type of hardwood. You can even choose between unfinished and finished hardwood for a customized look.



What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

The most significant decision with hardwood is choosing between engineered and solid hardwood, both of which have beneficial characteristics such as refinishing.




Where Can Hardwood Floors Be Installed?

Engineered hardwood planks can be installed on all levels of your home, including in finished basements.



Solid hardwood flooring is best for homes that see moderate foot traffic.
