Solid hardwood flooring needs to be placed in the room in which it will be installed. The cartons need to be opened and raised off the ground. The boards should be in the room for several days to allow the hardwood to become acclimated to the environment. The process is not necessary for engineered hardwood.
As you can see, installation is a bit tricky. Skilled do-it-yourselfers can easily install engineered hardwood. Town & Country Carpet and Floor Covering recommends to our Plymouth, Minneapolis, Maple Grove, and Edina customers to leave the installation to us. We feel the best way to have a beautiful hardwood floor is to let the experts install it.
