Most frequent questions and answers

All hardwood flooring should acclimate to your homes moisture content 3-10 days BEFORE installation depending on season and conditions this could greatly vary and an EMC chart can be used to find acclimation point  (in winter months when the air is drier it is possible to over acclimate 3-5 days could be sufficient ) summer more humid months may take longer and will require air conditioning for best results
Making sure the subfloor is close to the same moisture content as the flooring is best.

Typically 10% extra is sufficient enough for your project.

It actually all depends on the finish you put on your hardwood flooring. Usually a floor wax is not really necessary, a slightly damp mop will work a lot of times and be enough to do the trick.

Western ceder and Redwood are some of the woods we deal a lot in that are really nice for exterior jobs. What has become really popular is thermally modified lumber. Check out our page on thermally modified products.

No..It’s very unlikely that they are valuable to be milled up in lumber. Almost all yard trees will have nails, wire, etc. rendering them useless in the lumber industry.

NHLA (National Hardwood Lumber Association) rules 6-8% moisture content.

Inside your home, it should be between 45-60%. As long as the humidity doesn’t fall below 45% no gaps will appear in planks nor will any other humidity problems occur in the winter time. To avoid cupping in the summer time, never allow humidity to rise more that 65%. Maintain optimal humidity levels by  keeping air conditioning running during humid summer weather.

Finger-joint separates over time, but solid wood does not. Finger-joint is generally made out of pine.

Surprisingly, not much. Solid wood proves cheaper in the long run though, with noting it’s durability.

Delivery costs all depends,not only on the distance needed to travel but also the size of the order.
