As Flooridng and Doors suggest, acclimatisation is one of the key factors you need to get right to make sure your new floor adjusts to the environment of your home properly. As a hygroscopic material, wood naturally responds to the amount of moisture in the air, and can shrink or expand depending on how much or how little moisture can be found in your home. When fitted, the floor should have no sizeable spaces in between the panels and should fit naturally. In order for your new floor to acclimatise properly, you should make sure that the heating is on at its usual level and any wet materials (i.e. plastering or paint) must be completely dry. As well as this, try to make sure all windows are closed at all times. Flooring usually takes around three weeks to properly acclimatise and you can help it along by allowing it to breathe, by placing it on a totally flat surface.
As well as floors, Flooring and Doors also stock a superb range of Sanrafael designer doors and Roziere designer doors, with the option of XL doors on offer if needs be. When fitting hardwood doors, Flooring and Doors suggest that you get the conditions of the room right first. This could include making sure the building is completely weather tight before beginning any fittings, as this could compromise the quality of the material. As well as this, the heating system must be properly tested previously, and the relative humidity of the room must be between 40% and 60%.
