Summer humidity levels are typically higher than other seasons of the year. Wood expands when it gains moisture. The result is often cupping, buckling, surface checks and squeaks in hardwood floors. Recently, manufacturers of some hardwood floors have written warranties and installation recommendations that building environments be kept within a specific range. Learn what can be done to minimize summer-moisture related issues from flooring selection, installation and environmental control standpoints.
