so, since I'm now interrested in hardwood floors as opposed to laminate floors,I've been looking at various hardwood floor websites. the FAQ on one site caught my attention. the question went something like: "why are there gaps in my hardwood floor?" the answer was that in the summer when humidity is up there,the wood soaks in the water in the air and the wood expands. in the winter,when the air is dry,the wood dries out and contracts hence some gaps. is this a somewhat common thing? this wouldn't be in their FAQ unless this situation came up a few times. their "cure" was to keep the rel. humid. in your house at 45% always. can't seem to recall anybody complaining about this. anybody know anything about this?
