This mostly depends upon the type of flooring and its backing, but there is one exception: solid hardwood floors. These use the traditional tongue and groove with a nail down with several coats of stain and finish, all of which must be thoroughly dry between coats. In addition, subfloors need to be restored with moisture readings taken throughout the process.
Others include the floating floor where the pieces click and mat and then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue. Loose lay is similar to the floating floor but doesn't have the clicking mechanism; the sheets hover. Glue-down and nail-down are as they sound.
When we work on a flooring installation we'll employ the use of caulking or joint extenders which can enhance certain characteristics. At Moeller Carpet & Floor Covering
