The weather throughout New Jersey is typical of the northeast. While there is some variety throughout the state, most of the area sees hot/humid summers coupled with some extreme winters. Areas of higher elevation, like the northwest will have colder temperatures, while the southeast, because of its Atlantic Ocean border sees a milder climate. Humidity is a big concern for residents in New Jersey, because certain flooring products like hardwood and bamboo will expand in areas of high humidity and extreme temperatures. If you are interested in installing these types of products it is important to do so in a temperature controlled room.
Urban areas of New Jersey, like Jersey City feature apartment homes and multi-family housing. Most of these homes will feature hardwood and laminate. Rural areas of New Jersey feature ranch style homes with hardwood and some natural stone along the exterior, while more expansive estates include more natural stone like marble and granite. Throughout the suburbs there is a lot of post World War II multi-family housing made of mostly brick and hardwood. Because of the variety of homes in the state there will subsequently be a variety of flooring products, especially because extreme climate is of little to no concern throughout the state.
