Installation / Attachment of Wood Flooring

The way that the wood floor is attached to the sub floor can impact the maintenance of the product. There are some terms that span almost all of the categories of wood floor covering and require definition.

An important note: Wood is a natural material that expands and contracts with temperature and humidity fluctuations. 

Before any type of wood floor covering is installed, the building’s HVAC system must be turned on and operating at normal levels.  The product to be installed must be brought inside the climate controlled space and allowed sufficient time to adjust to the heated or air conditioned environment.  Failure to do this can lead to many post installation problems.  If the floor is to be installed on grade, moisture tests should be conducted.

The term tongue and groove refers to how the flooring is joined together. When the flooring is manufactured it has one edge milled with a tongue and the other with a groove. During installation the groove slides over the tongue giving the flooring much more stability. The term “end matched” means that the ends of the flooring are tongue and grooved as well.

Hidden nailing refers to the placement of the nails during installation. The nail is inserted just above the tongue, when the next piece is positioned the groove slides over the nail thus hiding it.

Jointed flooring does not have tongue and groove milling. It is manufactured with square edges, but is generally “end matched”. This type of flooring is used in environments where replacement of material is not uncommon.

Jointed flooring is face nailed through the top of the material. The nails are counter sunk and the holes filled with wood putty.

Regardless of the type and style of wood flooring you may have, FloorCare Specialists, has the skills and knowledge to properly clean, maintain and or restore your floor.  Contact us today for a free, on site evaluation of your wood floor care needs.
