Engineered: float t&g?
So we bought Mannington engineered 1/2" hickory hardwood whose spec sheet states it can be floated, and the quote was to float it.
The installer got the flooring, and just told us, after we requested the floated floor, that as the floor is t&g they can only nail it.
We think it's is undesirable to nail as it is in a seasonal house in the woods, with temp swings for -30F to 90F. Especially in winter when the house is being opened for use.
I suppose I am looking for any input: are we not thinking this through correctly, are these guys going to screw it up- maybe they don't know how to do it?
If the manufacturer endorses a float... Any reason it is not possible?
We are pretty competent DIYers, so we have a little clue about stuff...
