Wood Floors and excess Moisture

Many of the new homes built today have wood flooring installed on the first floor. Due to the rapidity of new construction, wood flooring sometimes does not have enough time to properly acclimate.  If there is excess humidity in the crawlspace, the floors can cup. Cupping is where the ends of the plank are raised relative to the middle of the plank- making a u- shape. You can eliminate the cupping by controlling moisture in the house. The simplest way to ensure continued enjoyment of your hardwoods is to have the crawlspace sealed. Removing the excess moisture found in the crawlspace will reduce the cupping of the floors.  Call today for a quote.
