  9. 9. INSTALLATION PROCEDURE  Tongue and groove  Click or wood lock systems  Floor connection systems  Glue down method  Floating installation
  10. 10. TONGUE AND GROOVE One side and one end of the plank have a groove the other side and end have a tongue. The tongue and groove fit roughly together thus joining or aligning the planks and are not visible. Tongue and groove flooring can be installed by glue down, floating or nail down.

A click floor is similar to tongue and groove but instead or fitting directly into the groove, the board must be angled or tapped into the curved or barbed tongue fit into the modified groove. No adhesive is used when install a click floor, making board replacement easier. This system not only exist for engineered wood floors.
  12. 12. FLOOR CONNECTION SYSTEMS There are a wide range of connection systems as most of them are mill-specific manufacturing techniques.

Additionally, engineered wood flooring may use the glue down method as well. A layer of mastic is placed ion to the subfloor using a trowel similar to those used in laying ceramic tile. The wood pieces are laid on top of them. Glue and hammered into place using a rubber mallet.
  14. 14. FLOATING INSTALLATION A floating installation is where the flooring is laid down in glue less manner on top of a layer of underlay. The individual planks are locked together using a wood lock system, and they are not glued nailed down to the sub floor. By doing this floor is floating above the underlay, and can be laid on top of existing tile or marble, without the risk of damaging the subfloor.
