Is Glue-Down Hardwood Flooring Right for Your Home?
Glue-down hardwood floors are installed by using a strong adhesive to fix the boards to a sub-floor underneath. Gluing the boards results in a tight fit that feels solid under your feet. Additionally, the adhesive acts as a barrier against moisture, protecting your boards from water damage. However, glue-down floors do take longer to install than floating or nail-down flooring. As a result, the installation is more labor intensive than other options.
