One of the great things about hardwood floor is that there are plenty of different ways to install them. The method we use will depend on your needs and the construction of your home. After we get a look at the room(s) you would like the flooring installed in, we can give you a recommendation on what type of installation to go with.

Types of Hardwood Installation

There are 4 major ways to install hardwood flooring.

  • Nail: Nailing your hardwood floors down is the process of using a nail gun to insert nails at an angle into the tongue of each hardwood floor piece.The nail is out of sight and hidden by the groove of the boards in the next row.
  • Staples: This installation is identical to nailing except staples are used instead of nails. The staples are driven through the tongue of the hardwood floor and hidden under the grooves of the boards in the next row.
  • Glue: Gluing utilizes an adhesive to attach the hardwood floor planks to the subfloor. We can integrate a moisture barrier to reduce the chance of warping or gapping occurring over time.
  • Locking: Locking is a very popular installation method due to the flexibility it offers. You do not need to use any adhesives, staples, or nails for locking hardwoods. We simply cover the floor in a moisture barrier, and then “float” the planks over the subfloor. The pieces lock in place together. This method is great because it is much easier to remove or change if you ever decide to sell your home or want a change of scenery.
