From uneven and raised surfaces to warped appearances, buckling wood floors creates a couple of causes for concern. Misshapen wood floors generate tripping hazards, squeaky boards, and unappealing appearances, hindering your spaces. Engineered wood flooring requires at least 48 hours to acclimate and completely settle into its appropriate size according to its reaction (expanding or contracting) to the new atmosphere. Without expansion gaps or time set aside for acclimation before installation, as the wood expands, the planks overlap and push up against one another, causing uneven and malformed floors.
After inserting and enjoying your new grey engineered hardwood floors or natural and earthy room aesthetic, buckling would make for a real Debby Downer.
