Split & Cracked WoodHardwood floors will crack and split over the years leaving behind a deteriorated floor that looks defeated. The cracks can be spot repaired using some angled nails that will secure the two pieces together. Wood putty is used to cover up the blemishes left behind from the work.
Gaps in the PlanksA very common floor malady is gaps. Gaps in-between the planks is normally caused by Mother Nature herself. Wood has the tendency to shrink as it dries out just as well as it expands when it is wet and humid. Regular expansion over time in your Baltimore home is the most common cause of gaps.
BucklingWhen the boards become warped to your flooring buckling occurs. They end up lifting up the subfloors the flooring is attached to. A professional can get to the root of the buckling problems and get your floors back to being elegant and functional.
Cupped FlooringCupped flooring is also known as washboarding. It develops gradually across the width of the wood strip where the edges of the hardwood planks raise up and the center of the board sinks down. The cause of cupped flooring is moisture imbalance.
Warped FlooringSagging has been another term that refers to warped floors. It can be a serious problem for any homeowner. It is the direct result of moisture conditions and needs to be addressed immediately. Warped floors are never the result of faulty installation or product.
