  • Installation Methods

    Installation methods vary depending on wood format and site conditions, but here are some general guidelines:

    • Solid wood is typically nailed, or nailed and glued, to a plywood subfloor.
    • Engineered wood is typically glued down to concrete or plywood subfloors, with or without an underlayment such a sound abating mat or a moisture barrier, depending on site conditions/requirements. 
    • Engineered floors are also usually the best choice for gluing down over radiant heat installations.
    • In either format, when planks are particularly wide, gluing and nailing is always good practice if possible.
