If the gap caused the floor joist to shrunk over time, you should install a long plank of timber near the affected joist. It should be slightly raised, as it has to reach the subfloor and fill the gap. It almost serves as a replacement for the joist. Uneven Subfloor Most glues will dry within 12 to 20 hours, all depending on the humidity levels of where they have been installed. However, for safety’s sake, allow the glue 24 hours to dry before you walk on it or start moving furniture over it.

Now it is time to start the installation of your hardwood floors. Ensure that you leave an expansion gap of roughly a quarter of an inch when laying the flooring, from the wall. This should allow enough room for the wood to expand and contract. This will be where the initial row begins. We recommend planning out the installation pattern prior to installation, by laying the boards down as you want them before applying the glue. If you are worried about water damage, you can buy WBP (Weather boiled Proof) plyboard instead of hardboard to protect against wear and tear. 6. Screwing in your floorboards – Fitting flooring over floorboards Here is another decision you will need to make: Should you install prefinished or unfinished hardwood boards? As far as the quality and beauty of the flooring are concerned, there is no difference between the two, but both of them have their specific characteristics. So, what are the main differences between the two options, and which one should you choose? Properly secured floorboards are important to ensure a solid foundation for your home. I’m talking about a squeak free, stable floor that can stand on its own right as the main flooring in a room or one that supports the flooring that you plan to put on top. But should you glue, screw or nail in the floorboards to get those floorboards to sit tight?

Using PVA Glue and Sawdust

If the boards are being used with a floating floor system the boards should be loose laid on top of the R10 Acoustic Matting. In summary, when you require movement of the floorboards and flexibility you should use urethane glue. You can use water-based glue thanks to it being easy to clean up and the VOC (volatile organic compound) content is particularly low. We recommend using a stud finder, taking a hammer and tapping the carpet to listen for the difference in sound, or using the tool found in your Squeak No More kit.

You also need moisture and humidity readings of the concrete, as this will affect how the wood expands and contracts. If the readings are fairly high, you will need to ensure that you buy hardwood floor glues that have a vapor barrier to protect the wood. You also need to make sure that the substrate is completely clean and dry. However, gaps in floorboards are a normal part of having hardwood floors. Many times, you’ll only see the gaps in the winter because they close up in the more humid months.Hi, I probably should have thought to join here before, not because I have loads of advice to offer but as a novice doing a (mostly) DIY 4 bed loft conversion hopefully, I can hopefully get some advice. Continue this process for the whole of your floor until all of the gaps have been filled and then leave for an hour or so for all of the glue to dry. The same thing happens when the wrong nails have been used to secure the flooring to the joists, this will also leave the floorboards loose and let them move around. In summary, there are two types of hardwood floor glues that you need to select from for bonding your hardwood flooring.

This hardness score of the wood boards tells you whether they can be easily damaged or worn, and is an indicator as to where you can lay them. For example, what type of wood board should you use in a playroom or living room? PVA glue is a cheaper alternative to resin, but it’s not quite as durable. Whichever material you use, you’ll mix it with the sawdust in a bowl until it forms a paste. Distribute the glue evenly over the substrate, do not cover the whole floor at once. Use the correct trowel and do a small portion at a time. Seal any gaps in the existing floorboards with AC95 Acoustic Sealant. If there are holes that are too large for sealant repair the floor with replacement boards.Should your substrate be wood, then you can use either a combination of nailing and glue or simply nailing the flooring down. The cheapest method is the nail-down method and it is also the least labor-intensive option. That being said there is a high risk of forming joint gaps between the floorboards, which will cause squeaky and noisy floors. However, the combination method of both using floorboard glue and nailing them down is the perfect option and provides better longevity than just using the nail-down method alone. Once you get to the last board cut to size down their length allowing for your expansion gap. Add expansion wedges to tighten up the joints and allow the glue to set. When the glue has set remove all of your expansion wedges. Fit any beading, skirting or architrave to cover your expansion gaps and complete your oak floor fitting. Spread the glue evenly over the substrate, but be careful not to cover the whole floor in one go. Only do a small section at a time, using the correct trowel.
