Hard Wood Flooring Facts
hard wood laminate flooring
Hard wood flooring cannot be installed on a surface that has more that 8% moisture. However in the situations where a builder is rushed and the concrete is still green, they builder may put down a low-density 6-mil-poly. Your hard wood flooring requires permanent protection and drainage of moisture for the life of your wood flooring materials. All traditional hard wood flooring subfloor systems cannot provide this long term. It doesn't matter if your using wood planks, plywood, 4-6 mil low-density poly, mastic or even a combination of these for a subfloor, they cannot offer the complete permanent protection for your hard wood flooring that provides and guarantees.

 

6-mil-poly's & Hard Wood Flooring
hard wood flooring installation
A vapor barrier such as a 6-mil-poly is traditionally used under hard wood flooring. We don't recommend using a 6-mil-poly under your hard wood flooring as it can actually damage your wood flooring materials instead of protecting them. A 6-mil-poly under your hard wood flooring:
  • Can attract mold and mildew
  • Draw moisture to the hard wood flooring
  • Does not allow your home or wood flooring to breathe
  • Can retard the curing of concrete
  • May not resist alkalines
  • Does not provide drainage abilities
All hard wood flooring needs moisture to be drained and kept away. A 6-mil-poly is unable to do this and can leave your hard wood flooring unprotected and vulnerable.

 

Wood Subfloors & Hard Wood Flooring

Any kind of wood subfloor under your hard wood flooring will be affected by excessive periods of high-humidity or moisture. Even if it's pressure treated, over time it will still twist and warp or start to squeak and can actually push the nails out of your hard wood flooring. In addition using a wood subfloor under your hard wood flooring will be very time consuming to install and expensive. Once you add the prices for the lumber, plywood, nails, mastic, 6-mil-poly and the hours per person to install it, it comes to well over a dollar per square foot for substandard protection.
