We had our walk-out basement finished a little over a year ago. Unfortunately, our contractor "did not accept" any punchlist items, as his work is always perfect. :rolleyes:
We knew from the moment we saw the single-plank laminate flooring that there were gaps between the ends of some of the "boards". There are probably 5 or 6 1/8"-1/4" gaps, which unfortunately are at the bottom of the stairs and quite noticable. I'm afraid to even wash the floor in that area because I don't want the laminate to begin peeling up at either side of the gap. Is there any way to tighten up these spaces to eliminate the gaps where they are noticeable? I realize there will be gaps somewhere, but I'd rather have them under furniture than somewhere as obvious as where they are.
Any advice would be very much appreciated!
