Construction Performance Guidelines
UNFILLED GAPS BETWEEN BASEBOARDS AND WALL
Unfilled gaps between baseboards and walls, where exposed to view, shall be tightly fitted. Unfilled gaps in excess of 2 mm are not acceptable.
One-Year - Work and Materials
Minor gaps caused by normal shrinkage of materials due to drying after construction are excluded from the statutory warranty.
Gaps not meeting the acceptable condition shall be repaired.
The gap can be measured using an appropriate feeler gauge. Gaps may be filled with a compatible material as an acceptable repair. The homeowner has a responsibility to maintain proper indoor humidity levels through humidification, ventilation, air conditioning or dehumidification. A hygrometer can be used to monitor indoor humidity levels.
