methods of wood fitting


The installation method used will depend on a range of factors including but not limited to: Type of joint, type of sub-floor, moisture content, and underfloor heating. Wood floors can be installed using floated method, Secret Nailing, or Gluing. In general, solid wood should be glued or installed using secret-nailing, whilst engineered wood are typically floated. The presence of underfloor heating limits the type of wood floor that can be installed, and also the installation method. Engineered wood above 15mm will generally require gluing down if fitted over underfloor heating. 

A very important aspect of floor installation is the expansion gap. Wood being a natural product expands and contract with changes in humidity. A space must be allowed for adequate expansion otherwise the floor will bow-out at some point. An expansion gap of between 10mm and 14mm is allowed around the perimeter of the installed floor. This can be covered either by fitting the skirting on top of the flooring, or by using scotia.
