subfloor installation

Posted by pam_f (My Page) on

We are going to install Armstrong Luxury Vinyl Tile and are following the instructions by putting down an approved luan exterior underlayment.

We don't have a fancy air floor stapler and renting one is very expensive. Can I use an electric staple gun? or does anyone have other ideas? Do they sell low priced air tools?

Thanks - Pam

The length of the staples is very important.
If they blow threw the plywood/OSB decking, you lose holding power.
