Hi. I live about a mile from the ocean in a high moisture area. We currently have wall to wall carpet and want to install either wide plank pine or laminate flooring. We've heard that we have to let pine "cure" for at least 6 months in our house before installing or else it will have large gaps between the planks. Anyone have any experience with this? So then we thought that we'd get laminate flooring. But I'm concerned about the moisture. Any suggestions? Thanks!
