acceptable gap size in new wood floor
Hello experts. In my new home 5"wide x 3/4" Prefinshed Maple wood floors were installed. I went over to see them today and noticed quite a few gaps between boards both on sides and end to end. I realize there will be some change with the seasons but thought they would start out without gaps since it is summer now and the dryness of winter has not hit us here in Iowa. What is the acceptable standard for gaps on the newly installed floors in this season. Is there some coin size that closely approximates this standard that I could use to check them? Thanks.
