Alright, thanks to all of you that have responded to my posts so far
I've gotten a lot of helpful tips and advice. I went to LL today and
they actually told me that it was OK to use this liquid moisture
barrier and the MVP glue to glue down 3/4 in. I told them they were
full of crap and no installer would every do this. So I've decided to
go with a subfloor.
When I ripped up the old flooring I found that the concrete wasn't
tension concrete so I can nail the wood into the concrete to create the
subfloor! woohoo. I had the guy put down 6mil vapor barrier then
cabinet grade 3/4 in plywood on top. When he put the vapor barrier down
he didn't overlap all of the seams he just taped them together. I need
to have him overlap all of the seams right ? Sorry for all of these
rediculous questions, I feel that I know more about flooring know then
the guy who's installing them! This guy also thought he could buy a
moisture meter at home depot for 20 bucks....its amazing how little you
have to know to be a liscence and bonded contracter.
Does anyone have any experience with the felt pad that has a plastic
moisture barrier on top of it ? LL told me i could use this instead of
using the moisture barrier beaneath the subfloor. I decided to go with
both so the layers will go.
P.S. I'll post pictures of the finished project (if anyone cares).
Should look nice with the new base boards too.
