I am buying a new construction loft which is to have floating maple floors. They were just put down, and the problem is I think they look terrible because you can see several gaps between the panels (a few are large enough to insert a credit card with plenty of slack). Is this expected? I've lived on a lot of hardwood floors and they have never looked like this. I need to know if I should be insistent with the builder to make it better. Please help.

The way I see it the only way of making it better is to have it replaced. It sounds like a poor installation to me unless there are flaws with the material itself. However, that should have been recognized at the time of the installation and been rejected.
