This session will explore problems and causes that are installation, job-site and manufacturer related. We will cover real world cases of actual flooring failures, such as cupping, checking, edge lifting, buckling, and gapping. You will leave this session with a better understanding of the most common failures, why they occur and the proper corrective measures. Nail down, glue down, and floating installations will be covered.
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
? Discuss the causes of many of the most common hardwood, laminate, and bamboo flooring failures
? Identify the causes of many common installation, job-site, and manufacturer related failures
? Implement techniques to correct many of the most common failures
? Develop a plan to avoid many of the most common failures before they occur
