Tongue-and-groove wood floors in a Portland, OR home

What is tongue-and-groove wood flooring?

If you've been researching hardwood flooring, you've probably come across the term tongue and groove flooring. But what is it, and how can you put it to use in your home?

That is a great question that many homeowners ask, and we?d like to address it in today?s post. Follow along for more details.

Hardwood flooring information you can use

With tongue and groove flooring, your hardwood flooring installation works almost like putting together a puzzle. Each board has a protruding part, known as the tongue, and a concave part, known as the groove, and snap together to form a tight seal that works well in various settings.

This option limits the amount of gluing or nailing necessary to hold the boards together, and in some cases, can make the materials water-resistant to a degree. Most of today?s wood flooring features this tongue and groove option because it works so well to alleviate warping and boards working loose over time, as can happen with nails and adhesives.

Advantages to this type of flooring installation include affordability, a quick installation time, and results that stay in place quickly. When you're ready to find out more, be sure to visit us when you're in the area.
