Changing install direction of tongue and groove

Q: We’ve just started installing a 3/8′ Red Oak Bellawood prefinished wood floor on a 5/8′ plywood subfloor attached to concrete/terrazzo. With remodeling/construction yet to start, we foresee a possible need to change the direction of the tongue and groove at some point in this process.

Is this commonly done? What’s the best way? What concerns should we have?

A: I haven’t worked with this product. However, with a 3/4 thick solid product changing directions isn’t much of an issue. I simply glue splines into the groove. With something as thin as you have, you may have to face nail and glue both rows which have grooves back to back.
