Please help - question on Plank Width for hrdwood floors

16 years ago


We were hoping to do wide plank hardwood floors for our kitchen in a darkish color to compliment the antiqued white cabinets.

Today I met with our GC and the flooring guy. They both say that wide plank hardwood floors warp and 'wave' over time. Is this true?

Apparently we have Oak 1 in 3.5 inches included with our quote. We will have to pay extra if we want wider/ more expensive planks which I don't mind TOO much I guess, but don't want to pay the extra and then have them warp.

I have to make a decision within the next couple of days.

This is my first visit to the flooring forum and I would certainly appreciate any advice! Thanks!
