chipboard flooring, does this need to be screwed or nailed?
i was going to nail it with a plaslode nail gun and 65mm ring nails,and can the end joints be spanned over a joist as my end joints do not land on a joist the boards are 22mm thick :? thanks in advance
All ends should be cut onto joists and although boards are mostly nailed with Ring shank nails (see our types of nails project) its a great idea to screw chipboard as it removes the likelyhood of squeaking later. See our creaking floors and stairs project.
