Engineered hardwood flooring is a superb choice for any area where real wood is desired, but excellent protection is necessary. For instance, an engineered hardwood installation could be the perfect solution for damp, humid below-grade spaces.

But, like many homeowners, you might be wondering how the products are installed. If so, you’ll want to read along to find out more about that process.

The engineered hardwood installation process

Installing engineered wood flooring always begins with the acclimation process. This helps your floors reach a balance between the moisture in your home and the wood being installed.

When atmospheric conditions are dry, the acclimation periods can take longer. It’s crucial to maintain a temperature between 60 and 80 degrees, and a humidity level between 30 and 50 percent inside the home before installation.

With a proper subfloor in good repair, installers can begin the work of installation right away. A variety of factors can affect the methods used to attach your new flooring, and your installers will be happy to discuss these with you.

Installation methods can include floating, gluing, stapling, or nail down procedures. Of course, gluing is one of the most permanent ways, so if you think you might want to replace this floor covering in the future, you might choose an alternate installation method.
