Installation

Installation Method Options: 
Staple-Down*, Floating or Glue-Down
*Note: Do not staple down smooth traditionally finished Pecan, Maple or Hickory Products
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.

Floating Underlayment:
Premium underlayment labeled for use with floating engineered hardwood floors

Floating Adhesive:
Bruce Everseal Floating Floor Tongue & Groove Adhesive

Blend Cartons For Best Appearance
Hardwood is a natural product and does not have dye lots. Floor should be installed from several cartons at the same time to ensure good color and shade mixture.

Material ending in “Z” (non-domestic manufacture) has a different tongue and groove profile.   For this reason, it should not be installed with “A” or “EE” suffix material.

Material ending in “A” or “EE” indicates domestic manufacture. Do not install with the “Z” suffix material.

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