They began framing my house and unfortunatly it has rained quite a bit on the subfloor. I live in Michigan so we weren't expecting any rain in December, go figure. The material used is plywood but I don't know the grade etc, is there a way to tell by looking at the sheets? I already see some dilaminating and buckeling. Not sure if these are the right terms but basically the top layer in some areas is coming up, not the entire sheet but small areas starting at the edge. I also see some small areas that bubble/bulge upward. I'll try to take pictures. I have two questions:
1) Will this cause problems with the 3" solid hardwood flooring that is installed later?
2) Can they replace the subfloor if the walls are up? They have all the walls studded out on the first floor, can they work around these since they are nailed into the subfloor?
