The selection of a nail gun is at the discretion and responsibility of the installer/ homeowner. Choose a nailed model that is specifically designed for tongue and groove applications. We recommend a Pneumatic 18 Gauge Flooring Nailed (such as Power-nail 50p Flex or similar). It is the installer’s responsibility to correct pressure for their stapler/nailed, and to ensure that the fastener is properly seated. Dimpling of the flooring face or edge is not a manufacturing defect.
Nail Down Installation Steps:
1. When nailing, the flooring will always laid perpendicular to the floor joist.
2. Allow a 1/2″ space for expansion around the perimeter of the room and all vertical objects using spacers.
3. Dry lay (do not nail) a couple rows before starting installation to confirm your layout plan.
4. Test the air pressure and angle of your pneumatic nailed with a sample plank to check for correct air pressure before installation. If you note any surface damage (face dimpling), tongue damage (splitting), etc., adjust the air pressure/angle according Test until dimpling no longer occurs.
5. Begin installation next to an outside wall. This is the best reference for establishing a straight working line.
6. With groove facing the wall, lay the first starter row in place by blind nailing or gluing to avoid unsightly nail marks.
7. Connect short side of second plank together with the mating side of the first plank.
8. Cut last plank and complete row. Use the remaining plank to start the second row.
9. Be sure to offset the end joints of consecutive rows by a minimum of six (6) inches for best appearance.
10. Continue the second starter row by connecting the short edges first and use a pull bar to tap the long edges together.
11. After the first two rows are secured, install the remaining rows by nailing directly above the tongue at a 45 degree angle.
12. Carefully monitor nailed pressure to ensure that the nail head enters the tongue only as deeply as required to allow the adjacent plank to fit properly, that the nail head rests cleanly in the “nail pocket”.
13. Recommended nail spacing is 8 to 10 inches along the length of each board.
14. Avoid nailing closer than 4 inches from the end of the plank.
15. As with the other rows, connect the short edges first and use a pull bar to tap the long edges together.
16. Regularly check your working lines sure the floor is still aligned.
17. The last row may require rip cutting the planks to size.
18. The last two rows will need secured in the same as the first two rows.
The newly installed floor is complete and walked on immediately.
Use wood filler, a finish touch-up kit or putty to correct minor flooring damage that occurs during installation.
