Ideas for Installing Teak Flooring

Teak flooring – Teak floors create a unique look reminiscent of the tropics. The wood has a distinct grain patterns and rich colors. It is installed like other hardwood floors, using the tongue and groove milling on the sides of the boards to hold them together. As with hardwood floors, teak flooring is best installed with a low pneumatic stapler, which can be rented at any home improvement store. As with hardwood, you will face the nails of the first and last courses.

Extend the underpayment flooring paper on the floor in rows, stapled down with a standard stapler. Start at one wall and work your way through courses, overlapping the sides of the courses by about an inch.  Place the first row of teak flooring along its starting wall, with the grooved edge of the tables sit half an inch from the wall. This space will allow the wood to expand, if necessary, and is hidden by the cutting floor. Tables set end to end, connecting the ends of their tongue and groove fittings. Use a trim nailed to shoot nails through the face of the first row of teak tables put two nails per foot. Cut the final table with your miter saw.

Install the next three rows of soil in the same way, top-nail the part and connect them for their long edges tongue and groove fittings. Use your pneumatic stapler to install floor boards after the first three or four courses.  Continue installing panel’s teak wood courses, one by one, with the stapler floor. Stagger the lengths of the tables, so do not line up from one course to another.  Nail in the final few courses with your nail gun, as it did at first. Use a table saw cut to the length of the final year of teak flooring, leaving a half – inch from the wall. The floor is now ready for floor adjustment.
