Hard wood floor nailer

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)


c_kayak_fun asked Wood Floor Pros: what’s your advice on the best click lock engineered flooring?

The floors in two bedrooms in my 80 year old house have 60’s era 10″ square linoleum tile tightly glued to solid pine subfloors. Seems to me like a perfect substrate for click-lock wood flooring. I’ve seen types that have the cushion backing already applied to each board section — how do you feel about those compared to the type where you have to roll out the liner before laying the boards? Also, I’d like a good product (don’t mind paying for the value) that’s going to be stable, consistent in color and preferably low solvent emission. Any particular brands you’ve worked with that you recommend highly. I’m thinking I should go engineeered rather than solid for lower cost and the fact that these will not be high-wear areas. The rooms will have large area rugs and not get heavy traffic so wear isn’t a big issue.

I’ve been underwhelmed by the choices at the building centers but have heard mixed reviews of the products from specialists like Lumber Liquidators / Bellawood. After doing much on-line research and visiting some showrooms I’m still somewhat confused. I’m not interested in bamboo — the rest of the house has nice old long-leaf pine floors with a red oak look and I’d like to keep that appearance to suit the vintage of the house (Arts and Crafts bungalow).

I might be be installing this myself though I do have a good remodelling contractor I may pay to do it. Though I have installed solid oak tongue and groove in the past (and drilled and ring-nailed the tongue as I went) that’s a lot of work, even if I buy or rent a pneumatic nailer this time. I would love to just be able to click it without nails or glue. Any problems with that type of completely floating product or do you feel that nailed or glued installations are better?

I would welcome any advice or tips on product selection and installation from any of the pros on here.
P.S. Perhaps I was not clear on this: I do NOT want laminate. I like it for countertops but think it looks terrible on floors and, based on what I have seen in other people’s homes, it holds up poorly.

I want an engineered wood product — veneered real wood on a substrate,

And got the following answer:

I am in building maintenance and I endorse and have used Bruce hardwood flooring products. Be sure to use the underlayment. You have a different problem though and that is the existing floor you have may be asbestos laden. By your description of the age of your house and the size of the tiles it fits the era when that was common to use in flooring. You can remove it your self but be very careful that dust and debris does not contaminate the rest of the house. If you don’t remove it and cover it up with the new flooring it will still be a disclosure issue should you ever decide to sell. Professional companies can be hired to remove it and guarantee a safe removal but they charge an arm an a leg. Also by not removing it you will have a raised floor that will be harder to match in the hallways. Bruce flooring had a video for do it your selfers contact them and see if it’s still available.
Good luck!

llckll asked Can I use the Dewalt DC618K nail gun to install hardwood floors?

I was planning on installing locking hardwood floors but have read some mixed reviews on them. So now if I want to install real hardwood floors, can I use my nail gun?

Thanks.
Can I use DeWalt nail gun?

And got the following answer:

Only for the first row. After that, the floor boards are blind nailed through the tongue with a flooring nailer or stapler. This is much more secure, and looks better, then face nailing the boards. As you drive the nails/staples, it pulls the boards tight to the previous row and closes the gaps. Hope this helps.

Ryan asked Bostitch MFN200 or Porta-nails 402? Which is the better cleat nailer for hardwood floor instalation?

I am looking to buy a manual cleat nailer for hardwood floor instalation. I am looking at either a Bostitch or Porta-nails nailer. Reviews for both products are good. I like the Porta-nails ratcheting mechanism and its versatility, but it only comes with a 1 year warranty. The Bostitch has less versatility but a seven year warranty. Does anyone have any opinions about either nailer, or how they compare against each other in terms of reliability and sturdiness?

And got the following answer:

i would go with the bostitch.i have had mine for 4 years with no problems

Kenny asked Anyone have any idea whether Baron Tools hardwood floor nailers are any good.?

Looking for a cheap hardwood floor gun to lay about 1000sq ft with. Found one on Ebay made by Baron Tools. Anyone know anything about this company? did some searching but couldn’t find any reviews other than whats on the Baron Tools website. My options so far are a manual powered Bostitch cleat and staple gun for 110 factory refurbished – an air powered one from Harbor Freight for 130, not sure the brand but it got good reviews – and the Baron Tools one off Ebay, no set price. So any insight as to whether the Baron one would be alright would be nice. Also, how different is the manuals from the air powered? Do you have to smash the crap out of the manual guns to shoot the nails? Thanks in advance

And got the following answer:

Pretty good.
