If you have tongue and groove flooring then it is likely that you will need WPVA glue for the joints. And, if you are fixing your floor down, do you need glue or nails?
All of our hardwood floors come with detailed fitting instructions. It is extremely important that you read these carefully before installing your floor. The instructions are there to help you to get the best possible results from your new wooden floor.
For basements and apartments with concrete subfloors, engineered flooring offers an installation advantage. Whereas solid wood is generally installed over one or two layers of plywood, which can raise the height of a floor and interfere with existing doors or marginally reduce ceiling height, engineered flooring can be glued directly to concrete, or over a soundproofing mat.
The direction you choose to lay your wooden flooring is entirely up to you. It might be worth thinking about how you want the room to look though. Most people lay their floor lengthways according to the path of light coming from a window or door. This helps to highlight the natural beauty of you flooring as the light falls on the grain pattern.
When you are thinking about having a new wooden floor you may be worried about installing it. We always recommend that you use a professional floor fitter for the job!
