Pre-finished, engineered wood on concrete question
it sounds like a bad install, with a number of possible cause's ,if the concrete floor wasn't clean before the install began,is this a radiant floor (was the heat on or off at time of install?.by the way any prefinished floor should lay flat,especially an engineered floor
"However, there is one area that clearly bows up and all the wood has a ridged effect on the tops like a ruffled potato chip" This sounds like it could be an adhesive reaction but hard to tell without actually being there to see it.
Unfortunately the way I see it you're dealing with a middle of the road manufacturer and the characteristics you see are commonplace. However some of the boards should not have been used by the description I'm getting.
For some of the finer hardwood manufacturers check out some information I obtained in Las Vegas last week.
