Installation Method Options: 
Staple-Down*, Floating or Glue-Down

All species of textured products (such as hand-scraped, wire-brushed, and rustic/distressed products ) can be stapled down with 20 gauge staples (1” minimum length for 3/8” – ½” engineered hardwood, for 9/16” hardwood, use 1-1/4” fasteners).

FOR PRODUCTS WIDER THAN 5˝: In addition to the use of mechanical fasteners, assisted glue applications should be used. The glue should be a premium grade urethane construction adhesive applied in a serpentine pattern to the back of each board. Then follow the recommended fastening pattern.

SKUs ending in EE or Z should not be installed with old non-Z material.  There is a difference in ply structure. 

Items with EE ending code are manufactured with Densitek core instead of a plywood core. The fit and appearance are unchanged. The Densitek and Z-code plywood core products can be mixed in the same installation.
