Glued Down Installation

With Glued Down installation, your floor is attached to the subfloor with an adhesive. This method is most commonly used over a concrete slab that is on grade. Here are the steps that our professional Flooring Consultant and flooring installers will take for a Glue Down floor installation.

We’ll make sure that Glued Down installation is the best choice for your situation. We’ll make sure you’re using a type of hardwood that’s suitable for gluing.

One of the most important steps is preparing the subfloor. It will be used as a means to fix your hardwood floor in place. That’s why it’s imperative that the subfloor’s surface is clean, dry and as smooth as possible.

We’ll assess the location, condition and use of your floor to make sure that Glued Down installation will work. Our installers will install your flooring using materials and methods specified in the manufacturer’s guidelines. We’ll take care to use adhesives that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

Gluing down hardwood or laminate floor is great for comfort, stability and durability. It usually prevents the annoying squeaking that many other types of installation methods produce. The only downside is that it’s very hard and messy to replace.
