Summer is the best season to install engineered wooden floors in your home as the weather is typically more conducive to construction projects. No rain and mud will get in the way causing delays to the project and disrupting your home. In summer, whilst installation is taking place you can enjoy the outdoors whilst it is completed.


It's Easier For The Wooden Floor To Acclimate To Your Home

The warmer weather and higher humidity levels in the summer can help the wooden floors acclimate more easily to your home's environment and be installed in time for the cooler months. This means that your home will be ready to enjoy as soon as the weather turns cooler. Enjoy your new floors all autumn and winter without having to wait for the installation to be completed.
