what type of nail gun for bamboo flooring?
I recently installed bamboo flooring in my office. I bought the recommended flooring nailer (Porta-Nailer) to do the job, but every time i used it, it would split the tongue of the flooring. And I mean EVERY time.
I was pretty desperate to get the room done and get my office back in business. So i tried using my finishing nailer and it seemed to work pretty well. Every once in a while i would line it up badly and have to scrap a piece, but I am happy with the outcome visually. I laid the entire floor with the finishing nailer. The room is approx 10x20.
My question is this: I am planning on putting the same flooring in the entire rest of my upstairs and want to know if there are any repercussions to this installation method that I am unaware of..and/or won't notice until 2-3 yrs down the road and i have to rip it all out...???
