How to lay parquet

Instruction
Start by preparing boards of the required size. On each board, in its lower part, cut the cutter furrow to a depth of 2 mm. Furrow need to cut along. It will make the grip of the boards with lags in the floor more dense and ensure normal air circulation. This will prevent mold, excessive wetting and excessive drying of the boards.
Lay the sheets of plywood on the leveled floor, control slope level, height differences are unacceptable. Starting to lay the floor, install a small groove between the wall and the edge of the board 1-2 cm. The fact is that with time the boards will disperse a little. This groove will become a spare space for divergence. Having marked the groove, nail the board with nails to the lag. This and the following boards nail 4-5 cm.
It is necessary to hammer nails tightly, caps should drown in a tree for 2-3 mm. Beat 2 nails on one lag.
Leave the floor for 2-3 days, then proceed to the actual laying of the parquet. Apply the floor drawing drawing to the floor if you need it. In this picture, you will lay the board.

Connect the boards to each other must be very tight. Before varnishing, all irregularities will have to be treated with wood filler.
It is very convenient to use the boards prepared for laying in advance. They already have the necessary grooves for fastening. They easily interlock with each other and get nailed.
Lay the latest boards in the floorings so that there is 1-2 cm to the wall. After all the boards are fully laid, gaps may appear. Permissible gap width - 1 mm.
