What Are The Possible Bamboo Flooring Installation Methods?

Bamboo flooring offers a variety of installation methods. The installation method depends on the type of flooring purchased. Face of Wood Flooring will tell you which type of installation method is appropriate for your flooring, so you don’t have to worry about it.

However, we are very transparent on what we do for our clients, so for your information, here are the possible bamboo flooring methods:

Nail Down or Staple Down Bamboo Flooring

As with normal hardwood floor installation, the bamboo floorboards are nailed or stapled into place atop a subfloor. The nails or staples are driven through the grooves in the floorboards.

Floating Bamboo Flooring

Strips of bamboo flooring snap into each other on top of foam underlayment. No nails or glue are used. The considerable weight of the bamboo flooring acting as a single unit prevents it from sliding around. The floating method is popular with do-it-yourselfers because the floorboards can endlessly be rearranged until the perfect look is achieved.

Glue-Down Bamboo Flooring

Strips of bamboo flooring snap into each other and are glued down for maximum stability. Glue-down bamboo flooring is less popular among do-it-yourselfers because its short working time does not allow for mistakes.
