Using expansion joints allows your flooring and sub-flooring to expand without affecting the look and feel of your floors.
During the winter months, the relative humidity (RH) in our homes drop, causing wood floors to dry out. When that happens, the wood shrinks and small gaps form between the floorboards. There are a number of ways to mitigate this problem and help to preserve the look of your flooring while adding to it’s longevity.
Most clients will think that hardwood flooring is a ‘set it and forget it’ aspect of their homes, and few will realise the importance of maintaining their indoor environment in order to ensure that their hardwood flooring stays pristine. When clients don’t maintain a consistent environment, you get expensive callbacks and a lack of customer satisfaction.
