Laminate on concrete slab

#2
First of all welcome!

And secondly, it CAN be done.

Have you noticed moisture on the floor before?

I don't do residential work, but some good guys here do and can advise you. In the commercial world of hospitals I work in we kind of overkill everything, but I know I could put your floor in with no moisture issues ever. At least you can relax knowing that!

If you haven't noticed a damp floor ever, you are in pretty good shape. You could lay a sheet of plastic over an open area of concrete and see if water forms under it. If it doesn't that's great! If it does, well you need to prepare more.

If your floor is a floating floor, I would think a good vapor retarder laid over the concrete before the laminate will work wonders. And it would be less smelly and messy than tar! Wink

You should reply with the brand and name of your flooring and any moisture issues you have ever seen. That will be a good place for our residential experts to start.
