Hardwood Flooring + Beating My Head Against the Wall
I need a straight answer - my new home is on a slab with radiant (water) heat. 85% of the flooring will be engineered hardwood. There is a vapior barrier below the slab.
One flooring company said to run heat system before install and also to acclimate the wood. The other company says there is no need to do that. The 2nd company is 2K less for the flooring than the other company.
Naturally, I would like to save some $$ here, but I want the job done RIGHT..
From what I have read - you should always run the heat for a good week, and also acclimate the wood before install.
What is the right answer? What do the flooring manufacturers recommend? I am in PA so we do have temperature highs and lows. Today,it's 91 w/ 100% humidity.
