Quick ? About Glue, laying in 30 mins.

Could someone give me a quick answer about the type of glue to use in the tongue and groove of a floating engineered floor? I bought normal wood glue and am getting ready to lay it within the hour. Is this going to be ok? My directions say "PVAc Adhesive". Tell me that I don't need to make my third trip to HD today.

Go back to HD.... "Normal" wood glue (Elmers/etc., ) dried hard with zero flexability. Engineered wood adhesive dries tacky to some extent - allowing for expansion/contraction. It comes in 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers.... Buy some mineral spirits also to wipe up your spills/slopover...

Jeeeeezzzzzzzzzz.. Hope he hasn't left yet!! I mis-read.... the glue I referred to was for glue down laminates...... 1 and 5 gallon buckets....

You still need the proper glue for joint applications rather than elmer's wood glue.. but probably not a 5 gallon bucket of it..... Jeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz................

Uh... what am I supposed to do with the other 4 1/2 gallons of glue now that I have my floor down and joints glued... Just kidding. I realized what you were talking about and went a bought a few bottles of the right kind of glue for joints. Telling me that Elmer's wasn't going to work was all it took to get me on the way back to HD and find the right stuff. Thanks for all of your help.

Glad it worked out - and I apologize for any mis-direction.
