Also to know is, do you nail down underlayment?
Staple or Nail Down Installation With a staple down or nail down installation over a wood subfloor using solid flooring or engineered flooring, it is recommended that an underlayment of 15lb. black felt paper is rolled out over the wood subfloor prior to installing the new floor.
Beside above, which side of underlayment goes down? Get started by rolling out the underlayment with the silver side facing down. The tape strip should be flush up against the wall.
