Concrete floor and laminate

Well in my humble opinion the tests performed were near what you would expect after the slab being covered by a nonporous covering like a sheet vinyl. The moisture in the slab equillibrated, moved up to the top like it naturally does. Course those guys who tested your slab probably didn't use the Wagner probes did they?

Anyway, those box store people don't know didily about how to control moisture issues. Out here they have a measure guy carry a concrete moisture meter around. If it reads high they usually walk away. I have never heard of them actually doing a real moisture test. And the managers typically are new business grads and have no flooring experience, met quite a few of them.

I suggest you use this product from Durabond, part of Bostik inc.


Then use six mil over it, float the floor with the appropriate cushion. Of course the slab needs to be checked for sealers and all that stuff they require. Go to a real flooring store or find a independant contractor who is knowledgeable in these situations.

Option #2, buy a wood like porcelain tile planks
