We had engineered wood floating floor installed in January. It has buckled and cupped...(floor is uneven in places and excessive bounce).
The installed came to inspect it and used a moisture meter. He acknowledges that the floor is not as it should be but claims that the problem is excessive moisture in the slab (yes, a moisture barrier was installed).
However there are no stains/other signs of water, which I would expect if this were the cause.
1/Can anybody comment on use of moisture meter on Eichler floors? Wouldn't the meter detect the water in radiant heating pipes? Any other
method recommended to determine if slab is wet?
2/ Can anybody recommend an EXPERT floor contractor in /around San Mateo? If so pls email (address disguised to avoid spam)
3/ Has anybody had similar experience?
