Thank you very much for the help. For some reason I couldn't find the detailed construction performance guide.

We can't register yet, but I have a lot of reading to do now.

Have a great day.

I went through the construction performance guide 3rd edition and found there are some minor wording differences and 3.18 is now 3.19, but the only new point which include PDI in the description is:

12.38 LAMINATE FLOORING BUCKLES

Laminate flooring is made up of individual layers (wood particles/paste) pressed and bonded together, with an image on the surface of the substrate or underlying core layer. If the environmental conditions are too humid, the laminate flooring may expand causing the laminate strips to lift up (bulge upwards) in one or more areas in the room.

The homeowner has a responsibility to maintain indoor humidity levels through humidification, ventilation, air conditioning or dehumidification to prevent permanent, irreversible damage. A hygrometer can be used to monitor indoor humidity levels. Laminate flooring shall be installed to accommodate normal expansion and contraction.
Slight variations in colour and/or pattern are to be expected when making repairs.

Question regarding flooring.
I attended a relatives PDI/PDO this week. They have installed laminate flooring. When you walk across main floor mostly dinning room you feel soft spot and the floor is uneven. You visually can not see this but you can for sure feel it, you feel like you are going slightly up and down as you cross it. I laid one of the unused boards over it and you can see a gap. the gap is not big. But for sure floor is uneven in this area. The home owner had to push the builder rep to add it to the PDO list, as they would not state their opinion on floor either way. It was added by builder rep to PDO as "homeowner feels floor is uneven" I have looked at the tarion guidelines for uneven floors and it is pretty vague in my opinion. It does talk about a 6mm variance. Two questions: how do I measure for that? and if floor is left this way does will more issue with the floor develop in time?
thanks in advance
