We live in northern New Jersey (read: can get really humid).
We have wall-to- wall carpet in our bedroom. The humidity caused it to rise like a can of surströmming (rotten herring). I have three questions:
1) would you recommend wall-to-wall carpet again?
2) which hardwood (or maybe engineered wood) is better against humidity? Or is it more a matter of how the wood is installed, floating vs. glued, or perhaps a combo of the two?
3) can creaky floors be avoided? The realtor said it is because of humidity? True?
Additional info: The bedroom currently has a wood subfloor. The rest of the flooring has a plywood subfloor over concrete. I do want to replace the existing floor.
