There should be no more than a four percent difference between the subfloor and the hardwood for strip flooring. If using plank flooring (3 and wider) there should be no more than a two percent difference. Do you have installation instructions for the product? They should also include acceptable temperature and relative humidity ranges as well as many other requirements.
