WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO FIT A HARDWOOD FLOORING TO EXISTING FLOORBOARDS?
Typically, the fact that the present or unique floor is irregular shouldn't be a serious issue if you've chosen a hardwood floor whose thickness is at least 18 mm. In such a circumstance, it will generally be easy to fix the new floor directly to the old planks.
As you probably know from our articles, there are in general three primary fitting procedures for hardwood flooring. Those are gluing, floating as well as repainting. After fitting a hardwood floor to existing or original floorboards, the best method is key nailing, in which nails are placed through the tongue of the boards.
When you're about to put in your new flooring, always make sure you ensure that the new planks have been fitted at 90 degrees to the existing boards, as this can make the floor more secure.
