    Hi Joe,

    I thought my installation was going well until we started inspecting all of the seams. It appears that some are very tight while others have very small gaps. I’ve included two photos one for the room overview and the other is a close-up view of one of the gaps on the butt end of the plank. Our concern is that this type of a gap might void the waterproof claim of the vinyl plank we purchased. What level of fit or “tightness” should I expect with this type of product and should I expect it on every seam on all sides of the plank?

    Thank you,

    Angus
