Ask The Doc A Question!


Is it O.K. to staple 3/4 prefinished hardwood floors to 3/4 plywood or should it only be nailed?


Dear Steven

I thought I made this clear in many articles. USE NAILS ONLY FOR ALL WOOD FLOORS !!!!!! Please read my article on a nifty pneumatic floor nailer available in the search box at the top of this web page of this site, it will explain why.
