5 Different Types of Installation Methods For Hardwood Flooring.pptx

  1. 5 Different Types of Installation Methods For Hardwood Flooring Hardwood flooring is a wonderful addition to any home. But you must be careful when choosing an installation method. That is why it is highly recommended that you have your hardwood flooring professionally installed as per the product’s specific guidelines for the best results. That said, here are key methods of hardwood flooring installation:
  2. 1. Nail-Down Installation This method involves nailing the hardwood planks to the subfloor using a pneumatic nail gun or hammer & nails. This has been a commonly- used method for centuries.
  3. 2. Glue-Down Installation In this method, hardwood planks are glued directly to the subfloor using a strong adhesive. Even though it may sound simple, this method requires expertise and should only be attempted if you have previous experience.
  4. 3. Floating Installation This method involves laying down a foam underlayment on the subfloor and then floating the hardwood planks over top, without any glue or nails. The planks are locked together using a tongue-and-groove system.This method is quite tricky and requires flooring experts. Poorly- installed hardwood floors will lead to flooring problems.
  5. 4. Staple-Down Installation This method is similar to a nail-down installation, except that staples are used instead of nails to attach the planks to the subfloor.
  6. 5. Click-Lock Installation This is a type of floating installation, where the planks have a click-lock system that snaps together without the need for glue or nails. This is a more modern style of installation and allows for faster installation. If your hardwood product does not have this system of installation built in then you cannot attempt it.
  7. Conclusion Your choice of installation method will also depend on other factors, such as the type of subfloor, the location of the room, and your personal preference. To choose the best installation technique for your particular needs, it is always best to seek advice from a professional flooring installer.
