Hardwood flooring parallel to joist below?

Posted by Chuck Grew on January 20th, 2003 09:23 AM

I recently removed carpeting from my dining room floor. There is 3/4" sturdy plywood underneath. My floor joists (16" O.C.) run longways in the room which is the same direction I would like to run the 3" wide 3/4" thick hardwood flooring. I know it is recommended to run the hardwood perpendicular to the joists but I would rather NOT in this instance. Does anyone forsee any problems with this?
