Can humidity in subfloor cause overwood? Or is it installation issues?

Q: Can humidity in subfloor cause overwood? Or is it installation issues? I have several examples in my newly installed floor, plus several cracked boards. Some of the tongues at install were observed to be severely fractured, with multiple staples piled on top of each other. Also, the incorrect fasteners may have been used.

The contractor is blaming subfloor/basement humidity (floor is on first level above the basement), but I think it is a bad installation.

Stain has chipped in multiple spots

Q: From May 21, 2018 question – local builder who did our stain job on stairwell saying they did a good job. Stain has chipped all over the first year (only socked feet walk on) and original stained tried to do “touch ups” but the painters tape that he put down is now pulling off huge chunks of stain.

I’ve seen some other sites that say never use painters tape on stained wood. I think, like you said, if done properly it should not pull it off.

Huge gaps in new floor/house and builder saying it’s normal

Q: I have 7 inch hardwood floors with very large gaps and uneven edges. The floor is also very wavy and has staples popping up all over. The home is 8 months old and the builder is telling me (although his team looked at it and said “Oh wow, that’s not good”) that according to the manufacture the gaps can be 7 times wider then “normal”. I don’t believe him at all and I don’t know what to do from here.
