 Post subject: tiny holes in new oak strip flooring
PostPosted: Sun Aug 08, 2004 6:52 am 
Hi. I am hoping someone out there can answer this question for me. We just had red oak #2, 3 1/4" unfinished flooring installed in our existing home and an addition that was just built (an approx total sq footage of 1500) After the installation I noticed little tiny holes in various locations, some in single boards, and others in nearby boards. I am almost 99% sure these were not there when the boards were first installed, however my husband is not so sure. What should we do??? Could it be infested with something? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!
THANKS!

These are probably pin worm holes, and they are permited in clear, #1, & #2 oak. If you see no debris around the holes, you have no infestation. The worms and eggs were killed during the kilm drying process.

The best of #2's out there will have wormy boards. I like the character they add to a #2 floor. They stick out in most #1. That is why they wind up in the 2 stack.

If you were in the midst of a hatch,you would know. Trust me. :wink:
