Taking care of your wooden floors in all kinds of weather

We hope everyone is handling this crazy summer we’re having, with heatwaves and flash floods arriving all in the same week!

Don’t forget that as a natural material, wooden floors also react to their surrounding elements.

Wood flooring will shrink and expand as part of its natural cycle and you can expect it to slightly shrink during the winter months, and expand during the warmer months.

Experts installing wooden floors also take into account reactions to underfloor heating, and this form of heating is only recommended in tandem with engineered floorboards, not solid wood.

There are quite a few factors to consider – but installed correctly, your wooden floor can last over 100 years!
