What is tongue-and-groove wood flooring?
When it comes to wood flooring, many installation methods could work for you. In today’s post, we will take a closer look at tongue-and-groove flooring, what it is, and what the benefits are for you and your household, so follow along with us here.
Tongue and groove wood flooring options
In the simplest terms, tongue and groove flooring is an option that allows wood boards to fit together with a tongue (or protruding part) and a groove part. This secure fit keeps everything firmly in place but does allow slight movement to allow for expansion and contraction.
Both nailing and gluing are still used to attach these pieces and to the subfloor, but the installation process is faster. It's crucial, especially with this type of flooring, to ensure that the boards have been adequately acclimated and have not been introduced to an area where the humidity levels are too high.
If you choose site-finished flooring, especially with the suitable coating, these floors even offer the benefit of being water-tight. That means it's an even better addition to areas that might see occasional dampness, humidity, or spills, like foyers, children's rooms, and kitchens.
