Cupping – this occurs when the edges of a board are higher than the center. This is usually caused by excess moisture which could be due to spills on the floor or high moisture in the air.

Crowning – this when the center of a wood plank is higher than the edges. It is also caused by increased moisture in the wood causing imbalanced expansion.
