Why You Should Install Hardwood Flooring this Winter

Some people worry that adding hardwood flooring in the winter is a bad idea. However, thanks to certain winder conditions -- like dryness -- wintertime is actually an ideal time to lay hardwood floors. Below is an in-depth look at why you should install hardwood flooring this winter:

Dry winter conditions prevent warping

Moisture and wood do not mix. One reason why you should install hardwood flooring in the winter is because the air is usually drier, meaning moisture won't get trapped. The less moisture there is when you lay hardwood flooring, the less of a chance your floor will buckle and warp.

It's easier to space the floorboards

Winter in Connecticut is cold, and cold air makes wooden floorboards contract. This is a good thing when it comes to installing hardwood floors. That's because it's easier to space the floorboards out, and you don't have to worry about large gaps forming between pieces.


Your schedule is less hectic

Once the holiday season dies down, chances are your schedule will clear up. You'll have plenty of time to decide which hardwood flooring suits your style best. More importantly, you'll have no problem scheduling an appointment for installation!
