Can this be installed over hydronic radiant heating?

Asked by Kup February 7, 2021
1
Answer

RADIANT HEAT: Yes, please follow the guidelines in the Installation Guide attached to each product listing page under Info & Guides. Radiant Heat Systems • The radiant heat system must have been tested and in operation for a few weeks prior to installation. • The radiant heating system needs to be turned off prior to installation and the floor needs to be close to room temperature 65 to 75 degrees. If the radiant heat pipes are visible or exposed in the subfloor, you must cover them with 3/8” plywood to spread heat more evenly. • After the flooring is installed, slowly raise the temperature to the preferred comfort level (over at least a 5 day timeframe) beginning two days after installation or at the onset of colder weather conditions. • The radiant heat system must be controlled and the surface temperature of the flooring must never be allowed to exceed 85°F. • Proper relative humidity must be maintained within your home at all times during the year. For best results and to minimize seasonal gaps keep indoor humidity between 30% to 50% RH. If you are in an arid part of the USA or Canada, it is especially imperative that you use a humidifying system to maintain this moisture in the air. • Forced air heating system also can dry out the air inside your house much more than you might imagine, so use of a Relative Humidity meter(Hygrometer) is recommended to ensure you know when you must use a humidifier to keep the relative humidity above 30%. • Even when these guidelines are followed it is still possible that your flooring may experience some cracks (seasonal checking) on the plank surface and/or gapping between planks due to slight shrinkage, which are not covered by the products limited warranty.

Such a beautiful flooring
We just had the flooring installed in the master bedroom. It was easy to install and looks wonderful. Will be installing this product soon in the other bedrooms. The product arrived a week earlier then expected. A very nice surprise!
by Pt0520
I love this flooring
I purchased a home last summer and did a complete remodel. I put this flooring in every room, excluding the bathrooms. Its absolutely gorgeous! I do have to be careful, as it does tend to scratch. But it is beautiful.

Beautiful Hardwoods
I looked everwhere to try to find the perfect color hardwoods for my home. I have 3 little boys tgat are rough and tough on everything so durabikity was also important. My local home depot didnt have samples of all of the color choices so I orderd a box of Point Loma (too white for me), Newport (too grey for me) and La Playa. We chose La Playa because of its lighter/medium tone matched better with our current travertine. I also tested the sample with a key, screwdriver, coins, etc and no damage to the wood. I was a little hesitant about the variability in tones and variation of the planks from reading other reviews but I ordered 31 boxes and used all but 2 planks (that I thought were too dark.) Love the look so much that we ordered more to complete our masterbedroom as well.

Delano Floors
After much deliberation, we went with the French Oak Delano for our entire house. We were originally nervous because Home Depot doesnt have the Malibu Wide Plank collection on display in our local stores and reviews say the color/tone tends to vary alot, but upon seeing them installed we love them! Our batch was very close to the samples we had. There are some variations and unique pieces, that we advised the installers to use inside the closets if necessary. The color of the wood is medium warm with a bit of grey, that makes it have a warm modern aesthetic that we were after. There is character to the wood, but I wouldnt classify it as rustic/barn at all. We just installed it last week, so I cant speak to the longevity yet, but we are aware this is not to be refinished/sanded due to the minimum wear layer. The only negative we encountered with using the Delano is that it doesnt have corresponding trim and stair nosing pieces like some of the other color options from Malibu Wide Plank has. Im not sure if its being discontinued or there is just a temporary shortage but it made finishing the final details a bit of a headache. But overall we are very pleased with the floor and it was as we expected.

Response from MWP_PRODUCT EXPERTJan 20, 2021
We are happy you love your floor, the French Oak Delano does have gorgeous color variation as it undergoes a special European Aging smoking technique to enhance the depth and richness of the 2mm Sliced Face French Oak Veneers. The entire collection of Engineered Hardwood Flooring is extremely durable, easy to clean and easy to maintain. All of our floors are sealed with 7 layers of the latest super low gloss urethane finish with aluminum oxide, providing protection from everyday wear and all backed by a Lifetime Residential Finish & 5 Year Commercial Warranty. If you wanted to strip off all (7) Layers of Factory UV Cured Stain & Finish, and bring floor down to raw unfinished smooth wood, pending the install application this could technically be done (1) time on the 3/8” & 1/2” Engineered Locking which has a 1.2mm Thick Face Veneer and (2) times on the 1/2” & 9/16” Engineered Tongue & Groove which has a 2mm Face Veneer. However this sand & finish is not covered under warranty as there are too many variables which can affect the outcome performed by your professional sand and finish mechanic. More then likely you would never sand and finish a prefinished floor unless you want to 100% Change the color. You would also lose your lifetime residential finish warranty and the surface texture which is wire brushed or distressed with saw mark would then be Smooth. If needed for whatever reason you could apply a new coat of finish to the floor using the Basic Coatings TyKote or Bona Prep recoat adhesion method for recoating a prefinished hardwood floor that contains aluminum oxide. If board damage occurs, you can always have a professional mechanic perform board replacement. The previous molding supplier for all Malibu Wide Plank Moldings is no longer doing business with the Home Depot, and a new Molding Supplier "Roppe" is in process of onboarding all Malibu Wide Plank Hardwood Coordinating moldings which should be online or available for Store Special Order by the end of March 2021.

Knots
Ordered a case to have better idea of product appearance and realized flaws in wood are fixed with a dark putty that makes a dark knotted look throughout the floor. If you like a rustic look then it may be fine. We want more refined flooring and the knots are distracting to the rest of the floor. We would end up with a lot of waste if we pulled out the flawed boards and that means a higher per square hour cost so chose to not use Malibu from Home Depot. Also flaws in tongue and groove and smeared some type of putty in cracks on backside.

Response from MWP_PRODUCT EXPERTJan 5, 2021
This French Oak Engineered Hardwood Collection utilizes handcrafted character grade flooring comprised of ABCD grade French Oak Lumber. This character graded hardwood may include naturally occurring cracks, splits, knotholes, mineral streaks, filler for stability, etc. By using this grade of material we are able to enhance the natural beauty of the hardwood floor you have chosen. We highly suggest reviewing all room scenes, digital assets, reviewing store samples if available, and always order online samples available for purchase. If you would like less knots you would have option of purchasing 15-20% (vs normal is 7-10%) extra and cull out the boards that do not meet your grading expectations. French Oak Point La Playa also undergoes a special European aging smoking technique used to enhance the depth and richness of the gorgeous French Oak species. JasonMWP
A Beautiful Floor!!!
French Oak Delano flooring has such an amazing look to it! The modest plank to plank color variation and natural tones with matte finish really have this product stand out as one of the most beautiful floors I've ever seen. The wide and long planks set this apart from my previous flooring and most other floors I've seen. Finally the saw face veneer gives the appearance of a solid wood floor. The construction is excellent and I can already tell I'm going to be very happy with this floor for many, many years to come.

INSTALLATION_This floor is my first install. I agree with other reviews that said installation was easy. Things to consider are the staggering and installation method. The varying length at times made the job go slower because I had to be mindful of the stagger and most pieces in each box were long. I decided not to staple but to float the floor. It is still moving after 2 weeks. I keep pulling out my pull bar and taping the ends because I can since my baseboard isn't back on yet. Perhaps my expansion gaps along the walls are too wide. COLOR_ It is exactly what I wanted even though I took a risk and didn't order a sample. The color is not far off from the picture. There is lots of color variation between boards. Tones go from grayish to reddish so if you want it all one color, choose something else. I really like it.

I’m am very disappointed with not only the floor, but the customer service of both Home Depot and the manufacturers. If you look at the pictures provided, you will see a vast color difference between the stair nose molding and the planks. Both colors are ordered as “French Oak La Playa.” Neither Home Depot or the manufacturers can account for the color discrepancy nor remedy the situation. I would, therefore, highly recommend against using this product if hardwood is required on any stairs or elevations.
