Common Types of Flooring Repairs
Many home and business owners are plagued by common flooring problems that require repair. From water damage to scratches, there are several reasons why you may require a repair to your wood flooring. Here are just a few:
A buckled floor arises when the boards start to warp and lift from the sub-floor. This is usually the result of water damage. That moisture can deform the edges of the wood and cause uneven surfaces throughout.
Also known as sagging, warping hardwood floors are the result of serious moisture problems and should be addressed right away. The source of moisture will have to be fixed first before any repair can be done.
Cupping is also referred to as washboarding, which slowly develops across the width of the wood strip where the edges of the planks rise and the middle of the board dips. This is also due to a moisture imbalance, as there is more water on the bottom side of the wood than the top. You’ll have to balance out the humidity levels to allow your flooring to return to normal. Once stabilized, we can sand and re-finish it.
Splitting or Cracking
It’s not uncommon for hardwood to get splits or cracks in the surface. Usually, angled nails and some wood putty will do the trick to secure the two pieces together. Larger cracks, though, may require refinishing.
Gaps commonly develop between planks. That’s because wood shrinks when it dries and expands when it is wet. This expansion and contraction lead to gaps between planks. Try the dime test. If you can’t fit a dime in the gap, the condition is normal and will change as the weather does. If you can easily fit a dime in there, call us.
