Hi, does anyone out there have advice or an opinion on whether we should be nailing AND using a floor staple gun to put our floors down? We are about halfway finished our 1st room with about 1500 more ft. to go. It is 5 inch wide plank flooring and about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick.
The reason I ask is that I was just at our Home Do It Center and they informed me that we just have to use a floor stapler, no nails! He has been using 2 nails at the end of each board and then stapling along the edges. My hubby is going by what he read on the Internet (Wood Association Website) and they say to do both.
What do you guys say? I say why do both if you don't have to!
