There are four primary methods involved in completing a hardwood floor installation:
Nail Down: With this method, wood strips are installed using a nailer and a mallet.
Glue Down: Glue is used for parquets and engineered flooring. An adhesive is used to fix the hardwood floors onto the subfloor. Your professional installer will use the proper adhesive for your type of floors, ensuring your hardwood floor installation does not go awry or cause unnecessary damage.
Floating: Using this method, the hardwood floor is not fastened to any part of the subfloor. A pad is placed between subfloor and wood floor, and glue is applied to hold each piece together.
