While the American National Standard for Engineered Wood Flooring (ANSI/HPVA EF 2009) is much more in depth of things to look for in your new hardwood floors, here are a few simple things to think about:

  • Think about the natural climate the species of flooring will be in.
  • Make sure you allow the floors to acclimate to their new environment properly before installation.
  • Ask your supplier if the floors meet the requirements set in ANSI/HPVA EF 2009.
  • Be sure to follow the manufacturer's installation instructions when installing your floors.
