RH in Concrete for Wood Floor with Vapor Membrane

RE: RH in Concrete for Wood Floor with Vapor Membrane
Direct stick was *meant* to be the preferred, easier method here- moisture test, vapour barrier, then concrete adhesives then the timber. No penetrating anything. Low-foaming adhesives can fill out drummy spots in concrete up to (wild guess) 5mm if the slab is not too bad, but over that you need a levelling compound. So yes, you pour it over a vapour barrier and stick to that. But then if your levelling compound requires a feather finish, you have to prime the finish before trowelling out the glue, otherwise the glue won't stick.

Easy, right?! Tongue

Ah well, if this game was easy everybody would be doing it and then you'd be out of business JD..
