Will Humidity Ruin My Hardwood Floors?

In short, yes. Humidity can cause major damage over time, causing your hardwood planks to buckle, cup, and warp. Here are a few ways to prevent moisture damage on your hardwoods.


Protect Your Hardwoods

  1. Keep your windows closed during more humid seasons.
  2. Use a humidifier during dry seasons and a dehumidifier throughout humid seasons.
  3. Keep the relative humidity of your home between 30% to 50%. 

    Is Engineered Hardwood Worth It?

    While solid hardwood floors will certainly add value to your home, they can come with the added worry of humidity and damage. That’s where engineered flooring comes in! Keep reading to learn more about these versatile flooring options.


    Benefits of Engineered Hardwood

    1. Engineered hardwoods are made up of three to seven layers of real wood veneers that are laid with the grains going in opposite directions. 
    2. This layered construction allows the wood to resist its natural tendency to expand or contract due to changes in moisture and adds stability. 
    3. This stability helps engineered planks to stand up to moderately trafficked areas.
    4. Engineered planks can be installed on all levels of your home, even in finished basements.

    Benefits of Waterproof Hardwood

    If you are concerned about moisture and humidity, or you would like hardwoods throughout your floor plan, engineered waterproof flooring may be for you! 

    • Its SPC core is impervious to water, and the veneers are all sealed from all sides. 
    • Waterproof hardwood has a unique locking system that locks out leaks. 
    • Since the planks are made with SPC solid core, the hardwood will not cup, swell or crack when professionally installed and maintained.
