Installation:
Texturewood® flooring can be installed on and above grade level. It is not recommended that this flooring be installed below grade. Installation procedures may vary (i.e. reclaimed versus new floors, or strip versus plank flooring, etc.) We recommend consulting with a professional flooring installer, and following National Wood Flooring Association installation guidelines.
Moisture Content:
Shipped at 6%-8.5% average. Moisture content may vary some based on the humidity level of the installation site. Therefore, we recommend flooring be acclimated on the job site in the same environment in which it will remain once installed, for a period of 1 to 3 weeks.

Samples:
Character marks such as knots, checks/cracks, worm holes, sap, and natural color and grain patterns will vary in each plank within a sample. This is more so in reclaimed wood due to weathering and use. Therefore, your floor will vary somewhat from samples and pictures shown.
