And by the way, composite wood moves too. In my den I installed one of those Pergo floors that you have to leave a gap around the perimeter so it can “float” – when I got home the next day it had floated into the dining room.
Wood moves.

Thats is one of the keys, it is not wood, a composite, with a printed picture of wood on the top. Did you have it in the house for a few days to acclimatize like the instructions say b4 the install? Every 16ft an expansion joint is required, did you install one? You even do that with a real, raw hardwood floor material that is Kilned dried, 3-5 days in the house you are installing into b4 installing..
