Hi everybody,

I am a long time consumer of this forum and finally decided to get some hardwood at my place.
We picked a engineered hardwood we believed would fit our house well in a natural oak with wide planks. Unfortunately, I am not sure if we got the best quality install.

I believe while nailing down the planks and gluing them to my sub floor, there was dirt under the gun which left my engineered hardwood with dents and nicks all over the floor. I attached a link with pictures of some of the spots.

If I visit other members of my family that got there hardwood installed a long time ago, I can't see any of the issues I got on our floor.

I would like to get your opinion on the install I got? Is this to be expected?

Thanks you for your time and help,
John

John:

How's it look from a standing position?

How do you know it's from the nailgun? Could be dirt that wasn't swept up. Could be anything. Those impressions would not be from a nailer (wrong location) unless they dropped it or stepped on some tools now and then.

You'll get more dings, dents and scratches as time moves on.

To echo what Ken said - nothing wrong with the install here, the photos just show very minor dings, likely caused by some dirt on someones shoe or something similar. I've also seen the floor covering go down after install but then gravel or sand or whatever in between and it gets compressed into the floor when walked over. A lot of these can be touched up with some putty and a stain pen.
