What are my hardwood flooring installation options?

With wood flooring choices come various installation techniques, and you'll have to choose one of your own. Of course, some materials demand specific installations, but we can work together in most cases to create outstanding results.
When you're ready to shop, you'll want to learn about these installation options. So here are some facts for your consideration.
Nail and staple down installation
One of the most common installations in this flooring line is the nail-down choice, followed closely by the staple-down. In this instance, you'll need a wood subflooring to attach the nails to when they penetrate solid hardwood flooring.
As the name suggests, this installation method involves glue and must attach the wood to a clean, flat surface such as concrete or wood. You can even attach wood to existing floors like laminate, luxury vinyl, and certain types of tiles.
Tongue-in-groove installation creates a floating floor with impressive results, with planks with a tongue on one side and a groove on the other. We only need to fasten the boards around the room's perimeter for a fantastic seal.
Your subfloor and flooring requirements in wood flooring are critical to choosing the right services for your upcoming remodel. They’re all worth it, so be sure to ask for more information to make an educated decision for your flooring needs.
