View Full Version : Need advice for inlaid tile and hardwood

I need any advice regarding the use of hardwood betweeen 12x12 tiles. I plan on laying the tiles first and then fitting the hardwood between the tiles. Any advice?

Welcome to the forum. What can we call you other than btk?

Lots of questions to ask here. Is it a slab on grade installation, or are you working on some other sort of subfloor? Is the wood going to be a solid 3/4" hardwood, an engineered material or parquet? I will assume that you intend to glue down the wood ? Maybe some sort of rough sketch to show where the hardwood will lay in conjunction to the tile. Any additional details will help.

What Chris said. :)

I would generally recommend installation in the opposite order; wood first, mostly finished, then tile.

My opinion; worth price charged.

What both have said - more info. and pre-finished wood first.
