Installing hardwood floors without letting it acclimate in the house first
I think I'm watching my in-laws' contractor do just that right now on their security cam. How likely is it that the floor Ends up with problems?

If the flooring was stored in a climate controlled warehouse, does it need to acclimate?

Or no matter what it needs to?

Just keep the evidence. If it causes problems I don't see how they could deny it's their fault.

Is it legit hardwood, or engineered hardwood? Big difference

Ceramic tile that looks like wood = no problemas.

Huge deal. I'd march right in there and slap Pablo right upside his head with a 3-foot stick of Stain Grade Quarter Round. But then again, I lack self control.

Except it looks like shite. Almost as bad as the farm house barn door trend.

you are thinking wrong, acclimating to your home, more often then not, means it is slowly absorbing humidity within the home and swelling/expanding slightly, its not for drying it out or removing humidity unless the flooring got damp in the warehouse.

so yes, no matter what, it needs time to acclimate or you will have gaps open up or the floor will start cupping over time

I wasn’t thinking one way or another, I was genuinely asking. Thanks for an actual answer instead of just a downvote.
