I've got two hardwood planks that gradually lifted up on their long edges over time. They're not lifted up that high - i can hardly tell visually. The house is 5 yrs old. Google tells me it's most likely due to moisture but i don't know if that's the case.
What's the best way to fix this? Should I nail it in or use some sort of wood glue or epoxy? Or even this product: www.fixafloorworldwide.com
Plain sawed lumber is more susceptible to cupping than quarter sawed lumber and to add to the problem it's common to only apply a finish to 1 side when unfinished raw flooring is used. With the quality of wood flooring we have today you may be real fortunate with only 2 being cupped. What i'd like to see for a solution is replace those two but that isn't always possible.
Are the problem planks located in an area that could possibly have a enhanced moisture issue?
I seriously doubt a hair drier would be successful because; when we lay a piece of wood out on moist earth in the sun we often see it cup like the piece at 12 o'clock in the picture.This particular area should be less susceptible to moisture than most areas of the house.
Could using a hair dryer on it work? I actually don't have any extra pieces of matching hardwood. not sure how easy it will be go find it either.
