I am putting down some solid 3/4" hardwoods in a room that currently is just down to the slab foundation. The foundation is above grade, and is pretty even throughout. I would normally put down sleepers and then plywood, but it creates some challenge with transitions and door heights. Is it reasonable to instead do some combination of just priming/sealing the concrete, adding a moisture barrier, using 3/4" plywood, and then putting the hardwood down on top of the ply?

I was asked to look at a bathroom, about 300 square feet, the other day. They installed Ditra underlayment and actually did a good job on it. The homeowners then set some cheap 8x20 wall tile on half the floor. It has cracked and the new home buyer needed advice. He wants to go with LVP. I told him that everything would have to come up including the underlayment, then scraped and smoothed out before putting down a quality plywood u-lay. The flooring store recommended just putting down the... LVP over Ditra ..read more

Expansion Space for Wood Floors Many of the “rules” regarding wood flooring installation are based on mythology and not necessarily on fact. Here's what you need to know. www.jlconline.com An old Q&A but first time I see it, it was in today's JLC feed. I had asked flooring suppliers for many years to justify the gap requirement. Never got a straight answer, always some convoluted story that didn't stand close scrutiny. My simple question was: if the board next to... Hardwood floor expansion ..read more

He has exposed joist bays below with radiant tubing running throughout the area. I have several Dri-eaz lgr dehumidifiers at my disposal as well as 40 turbo dryers.
