Click-lock installation

Click-lock installation is used for prefinished, engineered hardwood flooring products outfitted with a specific edge. Similar to a traditional tongue and groove edge, click-lock products have an additional feature of an interlocking profile around its edge which enables the boards to be clicked, snapped or locked together. Learn how to install your flooring using the click-lock method and be sure to download the instructions.

Things to keep in mind

  • Always review the instructions included in your box thoroughly before you start installation.
  • Lay flooring only after sheetrock and tile work are thoroughly dried and all woodwork and trim have been completed.
  • To prevent warping and gaps, the flooring needs to sit at least 48 hours in the space to acclimate to the temperature and humidity.
  • No matter the material of the subfloor, test its moisture content with a moisture meter to confirm that it’s not above 12 percent.
  • It's best practice to install your hardwood floorboards parallel to the longest dimension in the room.
