real wood flooring Add comments

do i need to use special underlay?can i glue the boards together? The sub floor is floorboards ,pretty mush flat.

im a builder …over 40 years …you never use underlay on a proper wood floor …it will creak for evermore …you only use under lay on laminate flooring ..and thats a floating floor …not nailed or screwed ..you do not normally put one wooden floor on top of another ..you normally remove the old first …or the new floor will be too high and will be a trip hazard ..you will allso have to cut down the door …if your new floor is going to be a show floor …no carpet ..then you can hire a special secret nail gun ..this allows the floor to have a nail free look

    There are wood floors that can be glued and or nailed down. Don’t use the foam underly. Use 15 lb felt paper.
