Thanks for reporting this remark. Undo bthomeowner I’m studying that Brazilian Teak wood flooring might be difficult with regard to gapping this species being one of many extra unstable of the Brazilian exotics. I purchased 4″ clear grade unfinished Brazilian Teak hardwood from a good distributor who stated that the mill dries their wooden correctly from the onset. I did all the suitable issues once I put in mine acclimated for every week and checked each many items of hardwood boards and lots of areas of subfloor for moisture content material with a moisture meter all had been inside acceptable ranges. I used the most effective water-based sealer and coaters ( by Primary) and even wiped the flooring down with acetone proper earlier than I utilized the primary coat of sealer to take away any residual oils from the wooden that would trigger sluggish or spotty drying. I then did a second coat of sealer after which the first coat of satin end ready to do a second coat simply earlier than we transfer into the brand new home. Moved in, however havent put the ultimate coat on simply but. I put in the floor in the summertime with the AC working. I’m informed that ordinary moisture content material inside a home in the summertime must be round 50-60% – which Ive all the time had. As we moved into the winter I began to note some gapping so I additionally put in entire home humidification for the winter as a result of I’m working air-exchangers that are consistently bringing in recent (dry) winter air. My moisture studying within the winter on my humidistat now reads a constant 39-42% with the humidification – which I’m informed is within the good vary. So my indoor surroundings is managed the best way it must be. With all of this I nonetheless have a couple of areas of dime-sized gapping and 1 or 2 areas of quarter sized gapping. There are different areas the place you’ll be able to see very, very small gaps (principally slightly below pure gentle situations). Id desire the floor to seem like one sheet of hardwood with no gaps prefer it appeared when it was put in. With all of my efforts to regulate the humidity my massive gaps haven’t gone away. Ive carried out some studying and evidently with Brazilian Teak that my gapping might be right here to remain. Ive learn and have been informed that after the wooden has been in for a yr or so it just about goes to remain the place it’s at this level (no less than with the massive gaps) regardless of if winter or summer time. Evidently this species doesnt actually have any reminiscence and all of the humidity on this planet won’t carry it again as soon as it shrinks. It’s attention-grabbing to notice that a number of the respectable dimension gapping is correct in entrance of my kitchen sink. My idea is that as a result of the compelled air (each sizzling air and chilly with AC) register beneath the sink is positioned within the toe kick it’s really pushing air immediately throughout the floor moderately than straight up into the air like the entire different floor registers. I consider this has brought about over-drying on this space the gaps right here have by no means left and happened solely after the cabinets the place put in (earlier than they had been put in the air was simply going straight into the air and not using a cabinet to defect the air down). Possibly a concentrated blast of a localized humidifier would possibly assist out a bit on this space, nevertheless it wouldnt make any sense to place a humidifier close to the kitchen sink not solely would it not be in the best way, however I simply actually wouldnt wish to have a look at all of it day. And once more, these gaps havent closed in the summertime with indoor humidity at 50-60%. I simply received off the cellphone with a gentleman at a neighborhood Lumber Liquidator (though I didnt purchase the floor there) simply to debate points with Brazilian Teak. He made some cellphone calls and referred to as me again. His sources say that if in case you have managed situations and the gaps should not closing up then the wooden might be going to remain the place it’s going to keep particularly after a yr. They instructed filling the gaps and placing my closing coat on, which is what I’ll most likely do. With unfinished I can no less than make the flooring look good even with the filler as a result of I’m coating after the match the end. Its more durable with prefinished flooring as a result of you would need to fill with what quantities to a matte kind filling making an attempt to match a semi or satin end the one saving grace is that this wooden is darker so it won’t be as noticeable. I believe that the massive subject is that Ive put in the flooring in New England, which has very humid (summer time) after which very dry (winter) climates. New England, as with different states in the US, has extremes in temperatures very completely different than the place this wooden comes from. Ive been doing a little studying and have discovered that plenty of distributors dont really feel snug promoting Brazilian Exotics into New England and different states with related climates as a result of the temperatures and situations have such a variety of fluctuation. Ive realized that the majority dont prefer to promote above 3″ widths (I’ve 4″) to those climates as a result of the wooden can cup. I purchased this wooden for the intense hardness (my spouse is accident susceptible and drops every part!), however I suppose the trade-off is the instability of the wooden. Id be considering understanding if anyone has been capable of shut the gaps with this species? 1 Like Bookmark December 29, 2008 at 2:21PM
