How-To Guides
Q & A

Q: : Is it me? Or are the cracks between my floorboards getting wider?

A: It's not you. It's the weather. When the air gets dry, the wood loses moisture and shrinks. This causes cracks between boards to grow. Don't worry; cracks will close up again when the air gets more humid. In the meantime, try to keep your home at 50 percent relative humidity.

Applegate staff will be happy to answer any of your questions as you select, prepare for, and ultimately care for your floor. But if you'd like to do a little homework on your own, we've put together a set of how-to guides to support you.
