Should hardwood flooring go in a basement?

Finishing your basement is an exciting opportunity but requires choosing a flooring that fits your space needs. We are often asked about installing wood flooring in basements, and we are going to talk about that a bit here in today’s post, so follow along for more information.

Consider your wood flooring options

When it comes to basement installation, solid hardwood flooring is not an option unless you can guarantee complete freedom from moisture, dampness, and temperature change issues. Since this is rarely the case, we suggest you turn to engineered hardwood instead.

Engineered flooring is created by laying plywood perpendicularly and topping it with a veneer of natural solid wood of your species choice. This construction model gives the flooring more dimensional stability, especially about dampness and moisture.

There are still specific requirements for relative humidity, which we will discuss in detail when you choose your flooring, but overall, these products work well for finishing your basement. To begin your process, discuss species types and additional options, and schedule a professional installation service, be sure to visit us at your convenience.
