Corlew and Perry has almost one hundred years experience in wood floor installation and have learned what to avoid and how to do it right. There are four primary ways that wood floor laid down onto the subfloor.
- Nail Down - Nails, generally from a pneumatic nail gun, are used to fasten the flooring to the sub flooring.
- Staple Down - 1.5″ staples are used in a pneumatic staple gun in lieu of nails.
- Glue Down - Generally used only with engineered floors as well as parquet floors.
- Floating Floor - Not attached to sub-floor. Easiest option for DIY projects, inexpensive but not as stable as other options.
