Is Winter the Right Time to Install Prefinished Hardwood Floors?
As you consider the advantages and disadvantages of pricing prefinished hardwood flooring installation, you may be asking yourself whether to take the plunge today and get the job done. After all, winter looms on the horizon, and engineered hardwood flooring installation is a significant job. In case you defer it till the weather improves?
Listed below are 3 benefits to getting the job done today.
1. Reduce possible gaps in the floor by adding boards when they’re more inclined to maintain a contracted state.
Hardwood floors are not static; wood expands and contracts according to its own degree of humidity. When you set up the flooring when it’s very dry out (in winter), then you will be less inclined to cope with annoying (and potentially harmful ) contractions, which can expose gaps in the planks.
2. Reduce chances of dampness getting trapped under the floor.
In the summer months, humidity may saturate the atmosphere, causing moist stains for trapped beneath flooring during setup. This dampness can intern spur the growth of mould and mildew, which can eat away at the ground and cause structural damage. When you do the job today, during the rainy months, you minimize the chances of mildew and mould events.
3. Engage in maintenance now to prevent problems when the weather gets very bad.
The last thing you want is to discover hidden water damage, structural problems or air quality problems during a blizzard or poor storm. Obviously, a water damaged flooring is bad any time of the year. But people tend to spend more time inside during the winter months (if the windows are closed), exacerbating air quality threats.
