Reservation of Rights
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
Moisture and Humidity – PLEASE READ BEFORE BEGINNING
Room temperature and humidity of installation area should be consistent with normal, year-round living conditions for at least a week before installation of wood flooring. Room temperature of 65°F to 75°F and a humidity range of 40% to 65% should be maintained during acclimatisation, installation, and at all times afterward. Warning – humidity levels below these recommended levels will likely cause movement in the flooring, including gapping between pieces and possible cupping and checking in the face.
Carl Marias Carpet Design, Inc. cannot be held responsible for site conditions. Flooring formats, such as plywood based engineered wood flooring, are particularly susceptible to showing movement such as edge/end shrinking and face checking from relative humidity below the stated minimums on site and/or tip-raising and subsequent end-shrinking if installed over a wet subfloor.
