To ensure lasting performance and lifelong beauty of your hardwood floors, care needs to be taken to remove excess moisture and high humidity levels from the environment prior to the delivery of solid hardwood flooring and wood paneling. Solid hardwood flooring is not recommended for basements or below-grade applications.

The process of aligning the wood flooring and the environment it is to be installed in is defined as acclimation, or more accurately, conditioning. This process involves understanding that the wood flooring and the facility are compatible. Upon delivery, your hardwood flooring and wood paneling need to acclimate 3-7 days to the appropriate conditions prior to installation. In wetter or very dry climates, it could take from 2-4 weeks to properly acclimate hardwood flooring to its new home. We follow the NWFA Technical Guidelines for these processes. Please contact us at 800-834-1180 for any details regarding the technical guidelines.
