Resilient Floor Joints Not Tight

Article Number

12.12

Condition

RESILIENT FLOORING JOINTS NOT TIGHT

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Resilient flooring shall be installed with no visible gaps in the joints when viewed under normal lighting conditions in a standing position.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials. · Gaps in joints resulting from inappropriate use or maintenance procedures cannot be considered for the statutory warranty.

Action

Visible gaps not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.

Remarks

The visibility of gaps is dependent on a number of factors including texture, pattern, colour, type of resilient material, and lighting. Reflected light, particularly from large windows, exaggerates any irregularity in the floors and should not be considered normal lighting. Joint filler recommended by the flooring manufacturer may be used to fill gaps between seams of sheet flooring. See Also: 12.11 RESILIENT SHEET FLOORING IS LOOSE
