Hard wood Installation
 
I am completely new to this and was wondering if I should be stapling my hard wood floor or nailing it? and if so what size nails/staples should I be using for say a 1 inch thick hard wood floor? 2 inch?

thanks all :)

ohhh and I meant nailing/stapling on the side tread to hold it nicely in place along with glue, not nailing/stapling the top of it lol

If you have a wood, plywood or osb subfloor it is best to staple or clean nail the flooring. If on a concrete slab you can float or glue it.
