t & g pine problems
I installed t & g pine over 4 x 8 beams in a loft in my new home, within 1 year the boards have spread to ove 3/8" apart from each other in certain places. When I installed them they were tight and nailed down securely. I spent many hours :mad: with car jacks trying to get them back together with no luck, does anybody have any suggestions, I am even thinking of putting carpet over it, but dont know if the carpet will end up with wrinkles if the boards move again. Plase help me :confused:

Sorry to hear that you used 'green' lumber. Most carpet will translate a 3/8" gap. You may want to think about adding a luan subfloor prior to the carpet.
