Trick of the trade….

Reading Time: 1 minute

Because Strand Woven flooring is so hard and dense it is not uncommon for a standard 2 1/4″ , 15 gauge nail or staple to buckle during installation. A trick of the trade to prevent this is to use a shorter fastener, I would recommend using the same 15 gauge in a 1 1/2″ to 1 3/4″ length.

Since the strand floors are 9/16″ you will have enough grip with the shorter fastener and the buckling will be eliminated.
