Choosing hardwood flooring is exciting and requires selecting options that fit your lifestyle, requirements, and budget. One of those choices is flooring installation, and while you cannot choose what you want for any material, you might be better served by understanding the installation methods a bit better.

Flooring installation techniques can vary greatly


Your flooring installation will vary based on the type of material you choose. Solid hardwood and engineered hardwood offer different installation techniques based on your requirements and the space to be floored.

Here are a few different installation methods you might hear about as you shop for your hardwood.

  • Nailing or stapling – This installation method, as you might assume, requires attaching your wood floor to the subfloor with nails or staples.

  • Glue-down – This is a great installation choice for longevity as well as sound reduction. It eliminates the space between flooring and subfloor, but it’s also dependent on the type of subfloor material you have in place.

  • Floating – These floors float over the subfloor instead of being attached to it, leaving more room for expansion or contraction if the environment changes a bit. It’s an affordable option that offers a quick and easy installation.
