Solid Wood Floor Fixing


Postby mikemahony » Sun Nov 09, 2008 5:58 pm

Hello all,

I am intending to lay a solid wood floor directly on to concrete. It is very dry and mostly very flat so I plan to use adhesive to fix it.

One area has a small step (a few mm) which I am sure the wood can absorb by bending slightly but I want to use screws in addition to the adhesive to hold the wood over the step while the adhesive sets.

Now the question: If I leave the screws in, will I have problems with expansion and contraction? If I take the srews out will the adhesive hold?

Any advise would be a big help. Thanks!

Just watched some guy on youtube with screws that snap off leaving a very small hole to fill, i would say if it needs screws it needs screws make them permanent and fill the holes later.
