Best Nailers for Engineered Hardwood
What kind of nailers do I use to install engineered?
To make your job easier, engineered wood flooring should be fastened with pneumatic flooring staplers work best that use 18, 19, or 20 gauge staples. For 5/16" thick engineered flooring the thinner 20 gauge staples are preferred. When selecting a pneumatic flooring stapler designed for engineered flooring, make sure it can be adjusted/set to the height equal to the thickness of the flooring being installed. Always test the nailer on a plank first to make sure your able to dial in the right air pressure to set the fasteners flush, with no fractures on the tongue of the plank..
