I installed about 800 square feet of 9" wide white pine flooring this past summer, and I am experiencing what I believe to be excessive shrinkage. Some of the planks have shrunk so bad that the tongue is no longer in the groove! I had installed 100 square feet in one of the bedrooms three years ago and there was hardly any shrinkage in that room at all. I am looking for any potential solutions to get the flooring to expand back to the original width or at least somewhat close. Any and all advice would be most appreciated.
