Dimples in New Hardwood Installation


I agree--he should have stopped as soon as he saw that the install would be a failure using the method he chose---

Let's see what a wood floor installer has to say---Mike---

The installer used a very cheap flooring nailer or he used the wrong pad on the bottom, which is used to determine the height of the wood flooring.

Before making any repairs, determine if the cleat dent is in the surface of the wood itself.

I will re-itterate my previous comments. There is not fix for this other than to completely remove the flooring and replace. He has done this with little to no experience. If he is not willing to pay for the entire floor to be redone, then you will need to go the legal route. Sorry but this is something I would of expected an amature to of caught very early on, which the installer of this wood did not. Your installer should not only not be paid but should pay for replacement of new flooring. Seek a lawyer immediately. I have installed many floors and this is cause for immediate dismissal no questions asked. JUST NO EXCUSE FOR THIS.

Anyone that cared about what he was doing would have stopped at the first strip knowing there were bumps, it's trash now. People like that ruin it for the rest of us.
