Nail-down hardwood


Is nail-down hardwood flooring a good option?

Nail-down hardwood flooring is different from glue down or floating wood floors and creates a more stable and permanent surface. There are plenty of benefits with this method that could make it the best choice for your home. We will give you more information about this flooring installation, so read along for the facts to help you make a more informed choice for your own home.

We offer both engineered and solid hardwood installation

Engineered materials are often installed with the floating installation method, as one of its many characteristics, although it can be nailed down. Solid wood is usually nailed into place and offers a cost-effective way that helps when budgeting is a concern. For example, when the flooring is nailed into place, an affordable moisture barrier is used instead of the more expensive padded underlayment required for floating floors.

Nailing your wood floors into place is also a more permanent method, which means acclimation is one of the essential elements of the service. Acclimation helps bring your new hardwood flooring to the same humidity level as the area into which it is being installed, preventing buckling, warping, and splitting once the installation of your floor is complete. This method also makes up for the subtle unevenness of subflooring for more perfection in your existing floor covering.

It’s important to note that solid hardwood can only be nailed into place if you have a wooden subfloor to attach it to. If your subfloor is made of concrete, stone, chipboard, or some other similar material, you must use another installation method. For more specific information about your situation and chosen materials, be sure to contact us to get started.
