Solid hardwood flooring installation is an easy procedure as long as you know what you are doing.

Acclimate the wood for five days to the temperature of the room you are going to install your floor. It should adjust the climate of the room before it is installed. But remember; do not lay it directly to the floor.

Procedure:

#1 Using 15- pound felt paper, cover the whole area with it. To make the floor strong, lay the boards starting at the longest, continuous wall vertical to the joist. At every last part of the partition add 3/4 inch to the width of the solid hardwood floor board measurement and mark. Drive nails into the mark.

#2 The boards are nailed through the tongue but the first and the last row of the flooring are to be face-nailed. In order for the boards not to split, you have to drill holes with the diameter of 1/16 for the nails and 1 inch from the ribbed border. Make sure that the nails hit the joist.

#3 Place a 3/4-in. spacer or expansion wedges next to the adjacent wall, and slither the end of the floorboard beside it. Drive flooring nails through the direct holes. Drill another hole through the tongue and countersink all the nails.

#4 Place the next floorboard along the outline. When the tongue and the groove are set into each other, push the floorboard together and tighten their seam. Nail all the boards downward until you get to the side wall. Leave a 3/4 inch always for the expansion gap then nail it in place.

#5 Spread all the solid hardwood floor boards into the room. Mostly, one bundle has a single color, you have to interchange all the colors, lengths and shades to create pattern and lay them orderly on how you would install them. This is to be sure that all the boards are mixed.

#6 If you are finished with the first row, go to the next row. Be sure not to level off the boards to make your strong. The beginning of the next row should be at 6 inches offset from the first plank of the first row. Cut the floorboard if necessary. Drill holes and nail them in the tongue not in the faces of the board. Work your way one row at a time.

#7 Use a floor nailer after you have set up the second or third row. Using a mallet, hit the nailer to drive the nail down through the tongue.

#8 Continue installing the remaining rows.

#9 If there is some obstruction along the way, frame them by positioning the boards to make the tongue or groove met with the rest of the floorboards.

#10 When you reach to the other side of the room and floor nailer cannot be used, drill holes into the face of the floor boards. Hit the nails to drive them down. To avoid damaging the boards, use a nail set to drive the nail down completely into the solid hardwood board.
