Hardwood Floor Gapping

How can I keep my hardwood flooring from showing gaps?


All hardwood flooring is going to have gaps and these can not be avoided. Because the hardwood is a living breathing product, it will expand and contract with changes in both temperature and humidity. It is possible to use a humidifyer, especially during the winter heating months to reduce the amount of gapping that presents itself during these dry periods. It is also possible to choose an engineered flooring line, that will be more stable and present less gaps.
