Forum Title: Floor Separating
About a month ago, I had my upstairs done with engineered hardwood. About a week later, it started separating. The guys came back out and fixed it, but now it's starting to happen again. (See photos). A couple of years ago I had my landing done in the same wood (different installer), and it separated like this and then completely buckled up. They had to glue it down. What gives?

Makes me wonder if they acclimated it first. Is it a floating floor or naildown. The flooring and subfloor need to be within 2 to 4 % moisture content depending on if its a solid or engineered.

It sat in the house for several days before they installed it. It's floating. It's engineered. What will have to be done to fix it?
