Hardwood over slab
I am planning to put a bamboo floor in my basement. I know that preferred methods of installation would be to install wood underlay or glue down the floor to the concrete. Neither option is appealing. I have been told that an acceptable installation would be to float the floor while gluing the pieces together (like some engineered floors). I like this solution but I would like to get a blessing from some more knowledgable people before I make what could be an expensive mistake.
Anyone have any experience on this topic?
so you live in oregon, someone just posted and asked who lived near that St Helen mess, the west coasts answer to huricanes.
Floating floors, Im not a big fan when over a slab in a basement
too many duck ponds ( low sposts) that in time will show or sound out (squeak)
living with a basement house I have seen advertised the little two foot by two foot squares of OSB over a vapor abarrier and ribbed plastic "sub floor" for basements that you can then put a "flooring" over
that looks like a possible
but what ever you do, fill the low spots
the pros her have lots of good selectins and ideas
years past before fixall and other mastics we use to fill low spots with folded over tar paper
but shoot Im just a ol boy with cheap tricks
I would use Dricore:
I'm going to be buiding a house soon and it'll have a basement which i plan to cover w/ hardwood floors. I like the dricore stuff but i seem to recall it saying it was good for 'engineered wood floor covering'. So i'm wondering if standard 3/4" T&G would be an issue.
check w manufacturer about installing below grade the dri core posted might be solution, otherwise an engineered product
