    Good Morning Guys

    We are involved in a fairly large Amtico Spacia installation , where the client want a herringbone design, its 1 area over 100m2 .
    We are having major issues with gaps appearing after installing approx 8 rows .

    Any suggestions , this is not the first tie we have experienced this

    Gaps on the headers?
    Or the next row isn't lining up?

    How have you set it out? (Start line)
    Are these the 3 x 9inch planks?


    First thing I'd do is check the tiles to see if they are all cut the same size....might sound daft but I've had a luvanto turn up before that I had to send back due to random planks being 1-2mm difference, had a similar issue with amtico but it was 1 same box.

    Its the rows
    They are long planks 1.2 m
    I believe it is down to slight variation in plank size

    Check the angles with a laser. Measure the planks you’ve laid. If they are different sizes you should ask for a new batch

    They can’t be exact which is no surprise. If any planks bowed it will throw it out as well

    Thank you Gentlemen , it would appear that the planks are slightly different sizes , so the client has now decided to install them at 45 Degrees .
    Happy Days

    I believe you get gaps if the floor isn't perfectly level. To the point I prefer to latex over ply to help ensure a level surface.

    Pictures would help, Im sure the master LVT fitter's here can help point out.
