Engineered wood floor

Post by DaveyR » Mon Jun 05, 2017 10:52 pm

Hi
I have 70 square metres of 14mm with a 3mm oak veneer engineered wood floor and can't decide how to lay. Nailing looks too expensive due to needing a floor nailer and nail gun but I can't decide between glue or tongue tite screws
I'm laying over wood floor boards
Oh and they are t and g
Thanks

I would say 14mm engineered floor with a t & g is designed so it can be glued down to a solid floor.

The other way they design a 14mm engineered floor is with a click together tounge and the hole floor is left floating.

A solution for you if it is just a nornal t&g is to glue to t&g joint and have it as a floating floor.

hire a flooring nailer, or fit it as floating
tongue tite screws are great for the first and last boards and where you cant et the nailer in, but it will be slow going screwing a whole floor down

At 14mm I'd have thought that the tongues were too thin to screw down and would distort very easily.

I'd just lay it as a floating floor on top of the boards.

I'd lay it as a floating floor, but it would need some laminate floor underlay underneath.
