What is nail down installation?
Glue down installation involves using adhesives to adhere the flooring material directly to the subfloor, or to a moisture barrier installed directly on the subfloor. It’s an optional installation method for installing tongue and groove engineered wood flooring and most solid wood flooring, other than nailing or stapling the flooring down. The recommended adhesive is spread on the subfloor with the proper sized trowel to adhere the wood flooring to the subfloor. If gluing over concrete subfloors, an adhesive with vapor barrier must be used. We recommend consulting with your installer for more advice on what works for your project. Please refer to the manufacturer guidelines, warranty documents, and installation instructions for more details.
