As the name suggests, each board is one solid piece of wood and is available in various lengths and widths with the
thickness generally being 18-22mm. There are three methods of installation:
Nail down is a method of fixing Solid Wood Flooring to a wooden sub floor, either existing boards, plywood/chipboard or joists.
The boards are secret nailed through the tongue using a nailer and are not visible when the floor is complete.
Stick down is a method of fixing Solid Wood Flooring to an existing concrete or wooden subfloor. The boards are glued to the subfloor
with elastic flooring adhesive which allows the floor to expand and contract as is the nature of wood.
Method 3. As an alternative there is Junckers Solid Wood Flooring that has been designed to "float" over an underlay, it is fitted together
with metal clips and is not attached to the subfloor.
