Our IVC vinyl planks are separating and there are many nail pops visible from the wood below. This house is less than a year old. We need to find someone to inspect the floor and or to tell us why this is occurring

Wood composants will shrink in the first few years of a new house when it drys up. This will cause the subfloor to move which causes the nails to pop out and cause your floor to separate. The difference in humidity as the seasons pass will also cause the wood to expand and contract. The nails issues will need to be adressed and a constant humidity level that is within manufacturer's recommendations must be kept.
