1. Install four, five or six rows of flooring, either as a direct stick applying glue to the subfloor or as a floating floor by applying Glue into the groove of both the side and ends of the planks.
  2. Connect each row of floorboards together to properly fix the tongue and groove connections as much as possible.
  3. Use the clamps every 90 – 120 cm and ratchet tightly until the gaps between floorboards will close.
    Note: Do not over tighten the belt clamps. These clamps are heavy duty but overtightening only concludes problems.
  4. Place strips of “14 days” blue painters’ tape across the newly installed rows of flooring, spaced 45 – 60 cm or so, and overlapping the previous sections of boards by one or two rows. This will hold the boards tightly together until the flooring adhesive dries.
  5. Release the tension and remove the clamps.
  6. Repeat cycle.
  7. Remove tape once flooring adhesive has set – consult manufacturer installation instructions for cure time.
  8. Enjoy your floor.
