Due to the susceptibility to humidity and moisture, solid hardwood is used only at grade or above, and in climates that do not experience drastic humidity changes from one season to the next. Bathrooms are not good places to install solid hardwood. A large amount of water that passes through bathrooms can cause serious problems if there is a leak.
Before making a hardwood flooring decision, consider your lifestyle.
- How many people reside in the home?
- Are there children?
- What will the room be used for?
Hardwood is durable and can withstand a fair amount of use. It is wise, however, to be somewhat cautious. A home with a lot of traffic will be best served by a hard species of wood such as hickory or oak. If few people live in a home, softer species of hardwood work well.
