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

Bruce Proconnect Plus Vapor Barrier Elastomeric Flooring 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.
