I have installed a hardwood laminate floor in my hallway and purchased a reducer strip made of hard bamboo. Unfortunately the 1 1/2 x 17 wire brads I tried to mount the reducer with folded up like wet paper. What kind of nails should I use to fasten the bamboo to the floor?
I am putting in a new bamboo floor using the old timer method of a hammer and nails, then setting each nail with a nail set. I am not using any type of nailer, since it is a very small space. the flooring is 5/8, and I have the rosin paper down already. Do I use finish nails, or common nails? Any response will be greatly appreciated.
