I am purchasing 1300sqft of 3/8" thick engineered hardwood for my home. 600sqft will be glued down (first floor is concrete) and 700 will be nailed down (second floor is wood subfloor). I do not want to float the floor.
It seems like the majority of engineered wood flooring out there is "click-lock" and designed for easy floating installation. There are also some that are traditional T&G, but for this option it seems the selection is smaller and often more expensive.
The associates at HD and Floor & Decor tell me you can glue or nail click lock flooring with no problem.
Are there any advantages/disadvantages for click-lock or tongue & groove planks when the installation method is glue or nail down?
Any other suggestions or considerations I should be aware of?
I live in a desert climate (Arizona) if that makes any difference.
