COMMON QUESTIONS:

SUBSTRATE REQUIREMENTS
Structurally sound, well bounded, flat to within 3/16” in 10’ radius, or 1/8” in 6’ radius. Vertical deflection cannot exceed 1/4” in 10’ radius, or more than 1/16” between the floor joist.

APPROVED SUBSTRATES
Underlayment APA grade CDX plywood/OSB. See NWFA guidelines for 3000 PSI concrete or 2500 PSI gypcrete.

WOOD SUBFLOOR (EMC) MOISTURE CONTENT REQUIREMENTS
Solid wood MC (moisture content) must test within 2% of the wood subfloor. Neither can exceed 12%.

CONCRETE AND GYPCRETE MOISTURE EMISSIONS, RH, AND PH REQUIREMENTS
Random width and/or narrower than 4 1/4” ONLY. Check with NWFA for an approved adhesive and/or moisture mitigation system for concrete/gypcrete, RH, pH, and installation requirements. (Bond and moisture mitigation warranties comes soley from glue and/or vapor barrier manufacturer.)

JOBSITE CONDITION RANGES
Prior, during, and after installation, the jobsite RH must be maintained between 35-55%, and the room temperature between 60-80°F.

ACCLIMATION TIMEFRAME
Minimum 72 hours to reach room temperature between 60-80 °F. The subfloor and the wood flooring MC (moisture content) must test within 2% of each other and does exceed 12%. If the MC falls outside this range, a longer acclimation period is required to reach equilibrium.

CAN WE INSTALL A CUSHION UNDERNEATH THE FLOOR?
Cushion is not compatible.
