Wood – What type of glue should I use to repair the hardwood floor


I'm replacing the tongue and grove boards in a section of my hardwood floor that were water damaged. On some of the boards, I'll need to cut out the bottom edge of the female side.

On a YouTube video they recommended using a 2 part epoxy for securing the board in place. I thought I could just use a regular wood glue.

What's the best glue for securing the hardwood floor boards?

Is gluing better than just using a few finish nails from the top?

We only use Titebond III waterproof wood glue on Hardwood flooring. You can clean up excess with water before it cures. This stuff works great and allows some flexibility for expansion and contraction.
