Do you have a maple wood sports floor experiencing buckling problems? Gym Floor Inspectors can tell you exactly why your floor is buckling.
Buckling, or floor expansion, can happen for various reasons. The typical reason floors expand is that they have gained more moisture than the installer allowed for at the time of installation. When maple sports floors gain too much moisture, the floor will begin to buckle.
In other cases, buckling can be due to outside influences such as stopped up drains, broken water fountains, water leaking under the floor, or too much humidity in the room.
More times than not, maple sports floors buckle due to lack of moisture control. Most floors expand and buckle because the installer did not take to account the change in humidity. On the other hand, your gym floor could have too many gaps in it because it was installed at too high of a moisture content. Hitting the right moisture content is an integral part of installing your sports floor, and Gym Floor Inspectors can guarantee the job is done correctly. We can also inspect a floor to prove where a floor has buckled or expanded due to installer error, which in many cases it is!
– If your maple sports floor is buckling simply due to a humidity issue, it is possible to change the humidity level, and add more expansion room. Occasionally, this can be a relatively easy fix.
– If your gym floor is expanding due to a water leak, there are several ways to fix the floor depending on the system installed.
– Call Gym Floor Inspectors and we will inspect your floor to see if your issue is caused by manufacturer or installer error. If that is the case, we work with you on getting the floor replaced legally free of charge to you!
