How to fix air pockets under laminate wood flooring, and what causes them?

We recently had laminate wood plank flooring installed by a general contractor about 2 months ago. Now we have noticed 2 different areas with large air bubbles underneath. One is on a wall on the other side of a bathroom. The other is in a corner of our loft upstairs close to a window. Our contractor says he left plenty of breath room for the flooring, and the lifting is due to water/ condensation getting in. He says the windows were not installed properly with window wrap, and that water is getting in from the wall, and that the bathroom sink which is on the other side of the wall must have had a small leak and allowed water in. Could this be the case for the air pockets, or is it a spacing issue? We have noticed the baseboard pulling away from the wall in some areas close to windows also. What should we be looking for to correct?
