Mesquite Hardwood Floor Install
Tips & tricks from a wood geek.
I am a huge fan of hardwood floors. I think that a true hardwood floor that’s been sanded and finished onsite is the best choice for a floor inside a custom home. I’ve remodeled a lot of houses and re-used their 100 year old flooring, there isn’t any other floor choice I can think of that would be saved and reused 100 years in the future. The most common choice for hardwoods in the houses I build has been White Oak, so when I found out the Architect (Scott Ginder with Dick Clark Architects) had specified Mesquite; I knew I needed to video the process.
Here’s a few teaser images of the finished house first:
Here’s a link to the Hygrometer shown in the video that we use to monitor humidity. http://amzn.to/JlBjdh
And this is my favorite jobsite dehumidifier the Quest Powerdry 4000 Pro that we use to control jobsite humidity.
Special thanks to Hardwood Designs who supplied, sanded, and finished this floor! Amazing work guys!
