Hardwood Installation Techniques
Installation requires some important details you need to know first. Some of these things include the different types of hardwood products to be installed (solid, engineered, unfinished, laminate, prefinished, and exotic woods) and the different types of wood installation methods (nail down, glue down and floating).
Nail Down Method
Liberty Hardwood Floors works with woods which are specifically made for the nailing or stapling method. Basically, nailing or stapling is best for the installation of solid and engineered wood planks or boards. With this method, the end results would be something remarkable, stunning, and well-crafted.
Glue Down Method
This kind of method is best for the installation of engineered and parquet woods. Basically, the wood is to be glued down on the subflooring which is usually made of concrete. We at Liberty Hardwood Floors make use of glue which is acrylic-based so as to give protection to any member of the family who is allergic to the odor of glue.
What is really great about this kind of wood installation method is that you can step right on your wood floor or position your furniture on it after twenty-fours from the time you did the installation.
The tongue and the groove of the wood planks usually makes use if this method in order to be installed properly. But if your wood planks come with a locking system then this kind of method does not necessarily make use of an adhesive in order to float. This works best for doubtful subfloors. Just make sure that the area where woods are to be installed should have wider spaces as the woods tend to contract and expand over time.
