We just bought a house with about 800 sq ft of engineered oak flooring, or at least that what it looks like, pretty standard gold color about 14 year old flooring, on concrete slab. It has hairline cracks or bumps along all the grain. Pretty much 100%. We are going to have new engineered flooring installed and I am concerned about this happening to the new stuff. Looking online the only cause that fit this problem might be low humidity. (I was worried that I might have to much moisture coming through the concrete.) I live in south Georgia. Low humidity is not a problem. I think this was just contractor grade flooring. Any body have idea what might be causing these cracks, bumps. ? There was spare strips of flooring. It all has the same issue. I thought I might should use the moisture barrier glue but my installer is not to excited about it, even if I pay the extra, as I figure its much harder to use. But if that's not the problem.....
