Problems with rubber mallet on hardwood floor installation?
I am having a maple, engineered flooring installed. When I went to Anderson Floors website's installation guide, they warn not to use rubber mallets during installation because it could damage the finish. This particular wood (Piazza) has a smooth, matte finish, so I am thinking that a dull spot would really show. Do I have reason to be concerned. The installer said that if he were to use a "tapping board" that the glue would be all over the place.
