engineered hardwood

I am going to put 3/8 australian cypress engineered hardwood in my guest bath. After I lay down the paper...do I nail or use adhesive to secure the wood? If I nail, should I rent a nailer for such a small area, Area is only 6X4, or can I just use my finish nailer through the tongue?

any help would be appreciated.

This question comes up often and basically you need to refer to the manufacturer and do what they recommend. By not doing what they ask will void the warranty thus offering you no protection when something goes wrong with their product.


Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.
