Hardwood Flooring Inspection Checklist

Common problems Mike’s Custom Flooring are called upon in residential homes and commercial businesses are often only underlining problems that have escalated into major problems. During an inspection from Mike’s Custom Flooring, we meticulously inspect every square inch of your hardwood floors. In many cases, we find these common problems listed below.
Cupping: Frequent issue in engineered wood and solid hardwood floors, cupping occurs when the sides of flooring are higher than the center of the boards, which then causes the surface of the board to form a concave shape.
Crowning: Crowning is the opposite of cupping when the center of a board is higher than its edges.
Gaps: Gaps often are a problem at installation, or can even develop over time when the boards shift and are not fitted snugly.
Splits-checks: Usually inflict hardwood floors due to overly, long term drying of the boards.
Finish problems: This can happen at time of installation or when a maintenance refinish is not properly performed.
