Glue-Down Hardwood Flooring: A Guide to Seamless Installation

Posted on August 7, 2023


Discover the Simplicity of Glue-Down Hardwood Flooring

In the dance of constructing a floor from the embrace of timber, there are those among us, self-reliant souls, who seek an alternative to the rhythmic percussion of hammering nails. They find solace in a quieter method, melding boards together with adhesive.

This art of setting down a “tongue and groove” hardwood floor, bound by glue, whispers simplicity. While there’s truth in the initial expense, a dance of assembling materials greater than for traditional hardwood floors, the reward lies in the empowerment of crafting with one’s own hands. This self-reliance comes with savings, diverting the costs of summoning professionals. Yet, once the dance concludes, one might still entertain the idea of summoning those who give the floor its final, polished voice.

Opt for the pre-finished timber, a kind often reminiscent of layered plywood, crafted to reinforce its spirit yet maintaining a slender silhouette. Commonly, this timber measures a modest half-inch or perhaps three-eighths, ensuring a harmonious transition to neighboring terrains. As you embark on this journey, be sure to choose timber that resonates with your vision in both hue and texture, and consider the edges’ character.

Construct your masterpiece in segments, with the crescendo culminating at the doorway’s threshold.
