Installation

 

Q:

The facility manager on a project I’m working on wants to specify climate conditions. Please explain why this is important.

A:

When it comes to installing fine woodwork, the installer’s greatest difficulty is climate. If you try to install the woodwork before the mechanical systems are functional or before all the windows are installed, you’re looking for trouble. That’s because wood is incredibly sensitive to changes in heat and humidity. In fact, most good mill/cabinet shops will write huge disclaimers regarding their liability as it regards site conditions.
