What is acceptable for gaps in Mannington Laminate Floors?

The installer left edge and end gaps of about 1/16 of an inch. Is that acceptable for a click system?

Are you talking about around the outside edges, or in the flooring it's self?
Where are you measuring from?
Did he leave the baseboards in place?
If it's the outside edges that sounds like it's not enough.
Just go on the Mannington web site and look up there install directs for the exact amount that should have been left.
A picture always clears things up when asking questions.
Laminate floors need room to expand and contract or there going to buckle.
