The type of installation and materials are determined by your home's subfloor, whether it's a concrete slab or plywood subfloor. The two main ways of installing are referred to as a nailed down or a glued down installation. Each are effective and have their own unique qualities that make them particular to the type of subfloor you’re installing on.
Installing on a Concrete Slab generally glue your product to the subfloor and use engineered wood. Some people may think gluing your hardwoods is insufficient. With today’s technology this really isn’t the case. Gluing your floor can be just as reliable and sturdy (if not more) than a nailed down installationm. It holds your hardwoods in place while at the same time expanding and contracting with the warming and cooling of the seasons.
Installing on a Subfloor Installing hardwoods on a plywood subfloor is a nailed down process. Between the tongue and groove, nails are driven through the board into your plywood locking it into place.
