RECOMMENDATIONS Choosing a wood flooring product that is right for you is not a simple decision. There are some factors to be considered when choosing the right floor: the hardness of the species, its dimensional stability under various climactic conditions, floor area to be covered, the kind of traffic it will take, and the relative cost of the wood, among others. Different species are further distinguished by such factors as: width, length, and thickness of the strip or plank; natural color of the wood and grade. Our hardwood floor is designed to last a life time.

V SECOND FLOOR (ABOVE GROUND LEVEL) V FIRST FLOOR (GROUND LEVEL) X BASEMENT (BELOW GROUND FLOOR)

Floors can only be installed on or above grade level and are not recommended in full bathrooms.

PRE-INSTALLATION (SITE INSPECTION) Prior to installing hardwood floors, the building must be structurally complete and enclosed, including installation of exterior doors and windows. Concrete, masonry, drywall, and paint must also be complete, allowing adequate drying time as to not raise moisture content within the building. HVAC systems must be fully operational at least 14 days prior to flooring installation, maintaining a consistent room temperature between 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity between 35-55%. This not only stabilizes the building’s interior environment, but also is essential when acclimating hardwood flooring to the job-site.

45


INSTALLATION LOCAL CONDITIONS Before installing the hardwood floors, the building must be completed. The concrete slab must be strong and dry. The floor must be smooth and without dirt. The hardwood floor must placed around the job site. This is essential for stabilizing the hardwood floor.

INSTALLATION ACCLIMATION Wood is a porous material with a natural cellular structure that expands and contracts depending on the amount of relative humidity present in the surrounding atmosphere. Equalizing moisture content to the job-site equilibrium point before installation is paramount to stabilizing movement after installation. Monitor the flooring and job-site conditions as they acclimate. If the wood is neither gaining nor losing moisture, an equilibrium condition has been reached.

COMMON SENSE CARE It is important to keep the Ribadao hardwood flooring free from dirt, water, food, grease and other spills wich can damage the floor or finish. Periodically clean floors using a leading brand of cleaner made for prefinished hardwood floors. Do not use ammonia or oil-based wax, polish, abrasive cleaners or even furniture cleaners. Make sure to install floor protectors under furniture or chairs or others items to help prevent scratches and dents. Avoid walking on floors with sharp, stiletto high heels shoes. Do not use equipment with water vapor. To help you get started, we have provided some helpful information about these wood floor species, some relevant properties, their Janka hardness scale, and glossary of techical terms. If you have any further questions regarding our hardwood flooring please contact our technical department.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Ribadao carefully controls the moisture content prior to delivery and all flooring is moisture metered before it leaves our facility. Moisture content information is attached to each invoice/packing statement. Flooring must be properly equalized, before installation, to minimize later on-site movement.
