Installation questions

 

Can I glue down a 3/4" thick floor?

 
No, this is a nail-down floor only.
 

Can I nail down a 3/8" engineered floor?

 
Yes. We prefer to call it a staple-down because you use an actual staple to install the floor.
 

After my floors are installed, should I apply a finish coat to seal them from moisture getting down in the cracks?

 
Most floors expand and contract with temperature fluctuations; expanding in the summer, contracting in the winter, throughout their life. Therefore, sealing of the joints will only last until the first heating or cooling season.
 

Where can I install solid or engineered products?

 
Solid products can only be installed on or above the outside soil line. Engineered flooring can be installed on, above, and below the soil line.
 

Are there any rooms in the house where I should not install hardwood floors?

 
We do not recommend hardwood flooring in full bathrooms that have a shower or bathtub. These rooms have a high amount of water associated with them, and there is a potential for failure.
 

What type of adhesive do I need to use with my installation?

 
Bruce recommends several. Connection PR+, Equalizer and Multi-Grip. Equalizer is the only adhesive recommended for the installation of Natural Reflections.
