hi i laid a engineered real
oak floor last summer and used 30 mm brads and glue to put them down it still look great but my problem is that in parts it has started to creek really bad so much so that i really feel like ripping it up it cost a lot of money has anyone got any ideas how i can solve this problem thanks for any help offered :(
i wonder if 30mm brads are quite long enough? were they secret fixings, toenailled at an angle thru the tongues? you may find that they have pulled loose in places and the creaking is the timber rubbing on the nails.
