about a month ago, i installed about 500sf of armstrong natures gallery and 2 in 1 quiet step over a concrete slab. everything looked great for a couple of weeks, then i noticed a gap had developed in the planks. it's about 7 ft long and 1/8 to 1/16 wide. it's gradual, going from being locked together at each end. it covers several boards. a week later, i found another area with a gap (this time about 5 feet long). is anyone else experiencing this problem? i don't want to take half the room apart, but i can't seem to force the pieces back together. any ideas?

Hi, I'm Kim. I see noone has replied to your message just like noone has replied to mine. I have a question for you though. We are getting ready to lay down 1500sq ft of laminate flooring and I was wondering how hard of a job you think it was. I am sorry to hear that yours is coming apart. I hope that doesn't happen to us. What are you going to do? Also, do you notice it being loud? Like a lot of clicking and tapping sounds? If so, how bad is it? My friend has been to someones house that had laminate and she said it was to annoying for her. I really like the look of it and it has so many positives, that we went ahead and bought a bunch of it while on sale. Let me know please how you like yours if you don't mind. Thank you. Kim
