Wood Flooring Installation Methods

One of the great things about wood flooring, aside from the stunning appearance, is the installation. You have a few installation choices depending on your subfloor and the type of wood floor you choose. Here's a quick look at the installation methods:

Nail Down – With this option, the floor is nailed directly into a wood subfloor.

Glue Down – You can glue down most engineered wood to a properly treated concrete subfloor or wood subfloor.

Float – Floating flooring comes two ways: You can either click and lock the planks together, like with Kahrs flooring, or glue together the planks at the tongue and groove – where they fit together. The finished product "floats" over the underlayment – similar to the way a dance floor works.
