A common complaint with wood ﬂooring is gaps between strips in ﬂooring. Often these gaps occur because of normal, seasonal conditions. However, occasionally gaps appear because of improperly manufactured or installed ﬂooring.
- First, the ﬂooring will be assessed for movement between strips. Strips may require face nailing, particularly near the groove edge to eliminate movement.
- Next, we thoroughly clean the gaps. Old ﬁller and trash is scraped and vacuumed away.
Filler is then applied down into the gap to the tongue level. For latex ﬁller in the wide gaps, shrinkage of the ﬁller may require more than one application.
- After ﬁlling, coloring (stains), screening, and re-coating may follow where surface ﬁnish is applied. If reﬁnishing the ﬂoor is determined to be necessary.
