I just bought a home without a basement. The home is built on a concrete slab, therefore all of the floors are concrete. Is it possible to install wood floors over the concrete? If so, what are the pros and cons of this? I would appreciate any insight you may have on this or any stories of experience. Thank you!
Yes, make sure your floors are level if they aren't they make a self leveling compound. Once this is finished make sure you use a moisture barrier over the concrete and then install the planks.
