In our Climate–Friendly Flooring section you'll find the pros and cons of the most common floor types in relation to
humidity. Before purchasing
new flooring for your home, it may be a good idea to first determine your region's humidity level. You may be
surprised to know extremes in humidity can
have a dramatic affect on certain floor types and result in damage that may be inconvenient and/or expensive to repair.
Choose the floor best suited for
your humidity level and help increase the longevity and performance of one of the largest surfaces in your home!
Below are links to common types of flooring and how they relate to climate and your environment. Also, at the bottom of
the page is a map that shows how humidity can vary from region to region across the United States (September humidity is
shown in this example).
