      Unhappy Sorry to hear that the flooring is cupping, Anytime the edges of hardwood flooring cup there is or was a presence of excessive moisture within the environment. Did the installer let the flooring acclimate? What did they use for a moisture retarder underlayment paper? What is the home's Relative humidity. If the inspection was done weeks or months after noticing the problem, the RL or excessive moisture could have dissipated. You might want to run an air conditioner or dehumidifier for several weeks which may pull out the remaining excess moisture out of the wood and the flooring may return to normal. Cupping is not covered in manufacturers warranties. Normal moisture content in Hardwood flooring should be between 6-12 % which equals 40-55% Relative humidity, if the relative humidity level in the home rises for an extended period of time the flooring absorbs this moisture and the edges of the flooring cup upward. The same thing can happen in reverse: if the wood dries out too much it will leave gaps between the floor boards.
