What You Need To Know About...

Hardwood...this flooring will dent and scratch. The term "hardwood" simply means that the tree from which the wood was harvested was a tree that produces seeds that develop into two leaves. It is important to choose the correct wood for your application in order to minimize denting and scratching issues, keeping in mind that ALL wood floors will dent and scratch. 

Hardwood...this flooring is hydroscopic. This means that they will take on and give off moisture like a sponge, causing the flooring to expand and contract as the humidity in the room changes. Separations or gaps between the boards are common when the humidity is low, such as in the winter. The key is to keep the himidity level between 35% and 65% year round. It should also be noted that the wider the flooring, the larger the expected gaps will be.
