Mirage Engineered Wood- Acclimate or not ?


Mirage claims you don't have to acclimate their engineered wood floors even in Florida. The company doing the install is insisting & says it can't hurt anything. He said keep the temperature around 75 and humidity at or under 50% & we'll have no issues. Some times keeping the humidity at or under 50% means we have to drop the AC to 72 or 73 which is cold.

Can anyone with experience tell me what their thoughts are on this?

Thanks Anne

Like they said.It sure can't hurt anything.I have never seen any kind of flooring that it was not a good idea to acclimate.It is a fact of nature that wood moves.

Another quick point.If I was installing you're floor and wanted to let it acclimate and you insisted on putting it in now.Any problems down the road are on you.I'm no longer responsible.

Why not let it sit for a week?

Follow the manufacturer's instructions and you shall be fine. Engineered is more stable than solid.
