Feb 17, 2021 at 18:04 comment added tnknepp @EdBeal That's a penny on the picture. There are some gaps wider (maybe a quarter's width...maybe a little more) and there are a lot of adjacent boards that have no gap.
Feb 17, 2021 at 17:23 comment added Ed Beal With heat and humidity changes solid flooring can move quite a bit. I can’t quite tell if that is a nickel or penny but the gaps look uneven and could be from sessional movement.
Feb 17, 2021 at 17:17 comment added Wayfaring Stranger I saw the boards, and they looked like 1920's oak to me. In a newer house, they might well have filled in the cracks. I tried some of that in my old house, and it just cracked open. Your situation may be entirely different. I'd watch the cracks, and see if they change by season. Hopefully refinishing isn't a "git er done right now" task for you.
Feb 17, 2021 at 0:26 comment added tnknepp Not sure that's the same problem since our floorboards had the gaps filled from the beginning (well, I assume they were) and our house was built in the 60's. On the other hand, maybe the filler is breaking up due to expansion/contraction of the boards. Is your floor sealed?
