Solid Wood Flooring Joining Advice

Solid wood flooring comes with either a tongue and groove system or a click system for installation. Here, you’ll discover the differences between the two to help you choose the best system to fit your requirements.

Click – If you want the simplest and fastest installation method, our click system solid wood flooring is recommended. Each plank simply clicks and locks into place with minimal effort. You won’t need much equipment and you can eliminate the need for glue or screws. Click system floors are especially popular with DIY amateurs.

Tongue and groove – The traditional installation method for solid wood floors, tongue and groove systems require a little more effort than the click system method. Each plank features a protruding edge, along with a rebated edge. These are designed to fit perfectly into one another. You can install these floors onto any type of subfloor, using screws, glue or nails. Once installed, the planks have a tight interlocking fit for a more uniformed finish.
