Installation Methods of Flooring

Nail Down

This is the traditional installation method for most flooring, especially hardwood flooring. The nail down method allows the opportunity to have a custom hardwood floor installation with borders and patterns on site.

Floating Floors

Not all flooring is designed for this type of installation because this method works best over an existing old floor or over a concrete slab. Usually, an engineered floor, laminate floor or a pre-finished hardwood floor is installed with this method.

Glue Down

In accordance with the National Wood Flooring Association, all hardwood flooring over 5” in width should be glued down when installed. If possible, E_M Custom Flooring & Installation prefers to glue AND nail larger planks for a tighter installation.

Snap Together

Simply put, the flooring material snaps together and does not require nails or glue. With hardwood flooring, there is a cushioned under-layer installed to make the floor sound less hollow and more comfortable to walk on.

It’s important to understand that wood is affected by its environment and changes in temperature and humidity can cause cracking, cupping, warping, and splitting of the wood floor. Therefore, wood is best in a stable environment with an equal temperature and humidity.

When It Comes to Installation, There Are Some Important Highlights to Know:

  • Have an experienced installer lay down your new wood floor. In case any problems arise while the floor is being installed, the experienced installer will know how to handle things appropriately, saving you the time and aggravation.
  • It is essential that the humidity and temperature level is under control before your floors are delivered. The floor’s moisture content must be even with the subfloor and complete job site.
  • Be sure that your wood floor is acclimated for a minimum of 3 days prior to installation.

For more installation instructions, you can refer to the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) Guidelines.
