A staple among floor installers
The staple down flooring installation method involves securing the hardwood planks to the subfloor using a pneumatic flooring stapler. This method involves nailing staples into the tongue of the hardwood plank at an angle, which secures the plank in place.
Staple down installation is often used for thinner hardwood planks, as it provides a secure and stable installation. Additionally, staple down installation creates a flush surface that eliminates any potential height differences between planks. This method is also known for being relatively easy and quick to install compared to other installation methods.
