I am trying to follow these instructions for hardwood flooring installation. I do not understand what they mean by "nail the rolls". I cannot think of anything related to hardwood flooring that would resemble a roll. Can anyone please explain what is mean by this terminology?

Step 7: Hand-Nail the Rolls

After the first few rows have been installed, drill pilot holes down into the tongue of each board and hand-nail the rolls until there is enough clearance for the pneumatic nail gun.

It looks like a typo for rows. Perhaps it was transcribed from a voice recording.

  • That's just what is going on. Swap the word rolls for rows, it fits with the context of the sentence. Always looses something in the translation....
