- Joint boarding
The boards are connected by straight or inclined joints.
Nailing is open (visible).
Joint boards are used in buildings of less importance.

The boards mate by rebates.
Nailing is open.
Rebated boards are used in buildings of less importance, too.
- Tongued boarding
The boards get grooves on both longitudinal sides in which tongues from wood - hardwood is recommended - or flat irons are shoved.
Open nailing is preferred. Covered nailing is possible only in some cases. Tongued boarding can be used in buildings of less importance and in flats.
- Matched boarding
The boards are connected by tongue and groove joints.
This technique provides a solid and dense floor serving many purposes.
Open and covered nailing is possible.
