After my floors are installed, should I apply a finish coat to seal them from moisture getting down in the cracks?   Most floors expand and contract with temperature fluctuations, expanding in the summer, contracting in the winter, throughout their life. Therefore, sealing of the joints will only last until the first heating or cooling season.
Where can I install solid or engineered products?   Solid products can only be installed on or above the outside soil line. Engineered flooring can be installed on, above, and below the soil line.
Are there any rooms in the house where I should not install hardwood floors?   We do not recommend hardwood flooring in full bathrooms that have a shower or bathtub. These rooms have the potential for standing puddles of water that can damage wood floors.
