    Good question about …
    Good question about joints breaking, but this tends not to happen because each plank moves a tiny bit transferring the pressure to the next board and so on. The floor then moves as a full plate into the gaps left (if the gap is not left then the outward pressure of the plate meets the wall and the floor will buckle at its weakest point, normally where there is least glue and towards the centre).
