Should I acclimate hardwood, laminate, bamboo, or cork and what temperature?


Here is a transcription, if you prefer to read instead:

“When preparing for installation of laminate flooring, hardwood, bamboo, cork, et cetera, those hard surfaces, you’re going to want definitely acclimate. Whether we do the installation professionally, or you do it yourself, you’re going to want to acclimate with within 24 to maybe even 72 hours, depending on what the manufacturer suggests. In the boxes, pretty much in every box, sometimes in every other box, you’ll find there are installation instructions, acclimation instructions, floor preparation instructions, et cetera. What you’ll want to do is definitely follow those to the tee. You’ll want the temperature to be between 68 to 72 degrees constant, before you bring the floor over, during the acclimation process and even after. You want to definitely keep it in that range so that the floor doesn’t expand, over- expand or over-contract during the acclimation, pre-installation, and post- installation process.”
