Hi I layed a oak floor last winter Everything went fine, there used to be a parkay floor stuck on to bitumen I removed the wood leaveing the bitumen in place then self leveled over the top Then layed foil back underlay then the floor Now 2 weeks ago in a matter of days 1 strip in the lounge door way has tented!! I really can't see it being moisture Could the fact we have no heating in the house, due to building works be causing it to buckle? Any help appreciated
