Nail Down Installation

Glued Down Installation
As the name suggests adhesives or glue are used in this method of installation. Hardwood flooring is adhered to the subfloor using high-quality adhesives. Through a chemical reaction, adhesives create a strong bond between wood flooring and the subfloor. Our experts will use specific adhesives as per manufacturer specification and depending upon your floor type to make sure that your hardwood floor bonds firmly to the subfloor for a solid feel. Glue is particularly used when installing engineered flooring and parquets. Glue-down installation is also considered the most stable method! of installation.

You will get additional benefits from moisture and sound insulation because we use high-quality adhesives.
When it comes to laying flooring this method of installation is probably the quickest and most cost-effective option. There is no use of nails or glues to lay the floor whether it is hardwood, vinyl, or laminate. In this method of installation, boards are designed in such a way that they can click and lock together. Depending on the material a floating floor can be laid on top of a wide variety! of surfaces which is what makes this a popular option. Before using this method the level and flatness of the subfloor and its dryness must be checked. Before the installation of flooring, a plastic moisture barrier will be laid on the subfloor.
