Although movement in timber flooring may occur, there are some conditions that should not. The conditions defined below should not normally occur in a floor and if they do, remedial work is often necessary.

Cupping – boards with their edges higher than the centre of the board. Moist conditions beneath a floor can cause cupping and heat in a specific location or a very dry environment above the floor can also cause boards to cup. Cupping is more likely to be observed in overlay flooring and in wide standard thickness boards. To some degree a small amount of observable cupping may occur in some locations where these types of flooring are used (e.g. sun exposed floor).

Peaking – This has the appearance of cupping but is the result of expansion pressure in the floor. Again it is generally expected that a floor would be free of observable peaking.

Tenting – This is not acceptable and occurs when the adjoining edge of two boards has lifted above the level of the adjacent flooring. This is often associated with high moisture beneath the floor and can be from a number of other causes.

Buckling – This is not acceptable in a floor and occurs when a section of flooring containing a number of boards has risen above an adjacent section of floor.

Crowning – boards with their edges lower than the centre of the board. This is not acceptable and occurs when a cupped floor from moisture effects has been prematurely sanded. Crowning may not become apparent until some months after finishing.
