THINGS TO RE­MEM­BER:

Timber Home Living - - Product Guide -

Solid wood floors get pricey based on the width of the planks, wood species and any spe­cial treat­ments (hands-crap­ing, dis­tress­ing, etc.).

Planks must be nailed to a sub-floor, in­creas­ing the cost of in­stal­la­tion and mak­ing them un­suit­able for use di­rectly over con­crete.

Changes in hu­mid­ity can lead to squeak­ing and buck­ling. This sen­si­tiv­ity to mois­ture rules out wood floor in­stal­la­tion in base­ments and most bath­rooms.
