Option 1 | Floating Floor
By far the easiest, quickest & cheapest methods of installation.
A suitable method for DIY and professional installers, however limited to plank flooring (Herringbone & Chevron requires glue down).
You must ensure the subfloor is flat prior to installation.

Option 2 | Glue Down
Also called ‘Direct Stick’, installation is usually done by professionals or proficient DIY installers.
A higher cost method, however your floor will have less tendency to move and will feel ‘firm’ underfoot.
Special timber flooring adhesive is used which includes a built in moisture barrier (seperate underlay not required).

Option 3 | Nail Down
A less common method of installation.
The nail down method can be used to secure plank floors to a timber subfloor.
A similar firm feel underfoot to Glue Down.
A ‘secret’ nailer shoots a nail into the tongue of the plank to secure it to the subfloor.
Note: often the direct stick (glue down) method will also include secret nailing the timber for a secure and tight fit as they lay over the adhesive.
