There are numerous types and causes of failures.  Below are just a small selection.

I would advise contacting to discus your particular problem.


Moisture followed by atmosphere are the most significant causes of failures with wood and resilient (vinyl) installations.  Carpets can also be affected by excessive moisture.




Wood - Solid, Engineered, Laminate & Bamboo

Apart from moisture and humidity, surface temperature can play a significant part in a failure.  

Other factors that cause failures are poor installation techniques and sub-floor preparation.

Textiles (carpets)

Carpet problems can be poor pattern alignment, gaps in seams, rippling / rucking, fraying edges or seams, pile reversal or pile pressure.  These are just some of the problems I come across.


Resilient (vinyl tiles and sheet)

Resilient installations fail most commonly due to moisture ingress, although when fully bonding, a lack of adhesive transfer can be factor.  With the innovation of click system tiles, these can fail due to a number of reasons.
