Float. Staple. Glue. DIY. No acclimation.
Our versatile floors are wonderfully easy to work with no matter the application.
How the locking system works.
Below shows how our floors can be installed and uninstalled. Tools needed include our Handblock and and 5S Locking Pin Tool, which are included for free with your flooring purchase.
Stapling down our flooring.
Chris and Julia Marcum showcase how easy it is to staple down our flooring, specifically Pepper. Tools needed for stapling include an 18-guage staple gun, 1/4" crown staples that are 1.25"-1.5" long depending on the subfloor, and of course our Handblock and 5S Locking Pin Tool.
Last row installation
A quick tip on engaging the locking pin on the last row. Required tools include our 5S Locking Pin Tool.
If you’ve installed a hardwood floor before, you’ll probably just need a few tips to make the floor installation easier:
First, calculate how many boards you need for the room’s width. If the width of the last row measures less than 3", rip the boards to be used in the first row in half.
Open a few packs and mix up the boards to get a good color distribution. Check the boards for any defects.
When installing, tap boards on the middle core, never the wear layer.
Make sure there are end joints in each row. Ensure that there is a 20" (5/8" & 1/2" products) or 12" (1/4" products) stagger of the end joints in adjacent rows.
Trim the final board to the right length and start the next row with cut-off piece.
Removing the locking system.
Our floors can become a traditional T&G floor in no time. This is useful when installing under door jambs for example, when an angle install isn't possible. Simply use a chisel to remove the lip on the locking system. You can also remove the entire locking system with a table saw. Be sure to apply glue to the joint to ensure adhesion and strength.
