This flooring, the HL604, is a solid bamboo, tongue-and-groove floor, designed to be nailed or glued down. Our laminates are designed to float, instead of being fastened down like the aforementioned bamboo flooring.

We prefer moisture cured urethane glue for bamboo flooring. There are other premium glue formulated for wood or bamboo flooring. Always check manufacturer's label fo ensure the glue can be used to install bamboo flooring..

For this solid bamboo floor, the recommendation would be to glue the product down over concrete; a nail down installation would only be advised over solid wood or plywood.

Yes, you can use the flooring adhesive method. However, after using this process myself with terrible results, I recommend using the nail-down method or choosing a thicker version of this flooring.

For this flooring, based on the fact that it is 3/8" thick and a softer bamboo, 18 gauge nails will work perfect.

Hi vick,

Depending on the nails and nailer you use will determine why the nailer is damaging the planks.

I'd first recommend to check the size of the nail, and setting of the nailer, to ensure that this reduces or eliminates the damage done.

See if you have an owner's manual to see what nails can work. Typically, thinner solid wood flooring like this work just as well with smaller cleats, and not staples.

Board joint separation is often cause by change in moisture content of the environment and/or subfloor. This change in environment causes the boards to shrink/swell. Therefore with careful observance to the installation guidelines and proper installation, end joints should not separate.
Some (but not limited to) guidelines:
allow the flooring to acclimate,
ensure that the subfloor is flat and level
measure the subfloor moisture content and verify that it meets the requirements,
use a moisture barrier and the appropriate glue,
maintain proper environment after installation.

Thank you for your inquiry. This solid hardwood would need to have 15lb roofing felt paper in between your wood subfloor and the solid bamboo flooring. If you are working with concrete, the flooring adhesive would be the only thing between the concrete and the solid bamboo.
