Wood flooring needs to acclimate for a minimum of 7 days prior to installation to ensure materials reach moisture content in equilibrium with expected use. Take necessary moisture readings to confirm when materials have reached proper moisture content and no further changes occur.
A qualified and licensed installer should perform the installation. CAUTION: DO NOT APPLY TAPE TO SURFACE OF WOOD. Wood is a natural material that reacts to climatic changes. Proper measures to be taken in the storage and installation of materials. Maintain relative humidity, between 45% to 60%. Refer to installation guidelines provided by NWFA.
All wooden floors have natural color variation. Untreated floors will have some color variation, depending on the species. Stained floors generally have less color variation. Smoked, fumed, or chemically treated floors have more color variation. Please be aware of the amount of variation before installing the floor. Installation of the floor assumes acceptance of the variation.
Wood is also affected by UV light and therefore will change color when exposed for long durations; this process is called ‘oxidization’ and happens over a period of several months to several years, depending on the species.
Different species will change different colors over different periods of time. Note that certain finishes also oxidize and this color change is in addition to the wood’s oxidization. Floor coverings such as rugs and mats should not be placed immediately after install. The floor should be allowed to stabilize for a few weeks.
