Gaps in hardwood/raised joist. Need help Please!
We are in our new build for 1 and a half years. Red oak thruout first floor. We have a large gap above a truss that has raised. There are also gaps every 3-4 feet that run the entire length of the house. We had an inspection by an engineer who said the house was well built, structurally sound but there was an inferior floor installation. The builder wants to have the installer remove boards so he can plane the joist. The installer would then replace damaged hardwood. He would then repoly and blend into existing hardwood.
Here's my question: Will this work? There are probably 15 gaps in addition to the large one above the joist. No doubt they will want to repair this, but should we insist upon a whole new floor?
As it is, we need to vacate the house for 5 days so they can do the repairs. Any advise would be appreciated.
