    Default Bamboo Flooring

    I have a question on installing bamboo flooring. Is glue required for installations or is nailing enough? If glue is needed, what type of glue is required?

    Thanks

    It depends, some can be installed as floating floors, and then they either glue or snap together. Some are more like traditional hardwood, and have a tonge and groove. Those would need either to be glued down or nailed (or both). SOmetimes, the manufactuer gives you a choice...you need to read the installation instructions for the stuff you want.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the info.

    Default Are you sure you want Bamboo?

    It is fun and has a neat look and is very durable, but some customers are not happy with the long term looks.
