Other Considerations

  • Wood flooring should not be installed in areas that could be exposed to moisture
  • Wood flooring should be installed after the building is climate controlled and should be permitted to acclimate per manufacturer’s recommendation(should be within 4% moisture content difference from substrate for plank widths less than 3”, and within 2% for plank widths greater than 3”.)
  • Transitions to other flooring types should be detailed in specifications and considered due to potential floor elevation differences.
