Installing Hardwood Flooring Over Concrete Slabs

Concrete slabs are a standard foundation for many buildings, offering durability and stability. However, they present a unique challenge when it comes to installing traditional hardwood flooring. Unlike wooden subfloors, concrete doesn't provide the same flexibility or moisture resistance, making direct installation a bit tricky.

Overcoming Obstacles with Engineered Hardwood

Fortunately, advancements in flooring technology have paved the way for a solution: engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood is crafted with multiple layers, including a real wood veneer on top and a stable plywood or high-density fiberboard (HDF) core underneath. This construction makes engineered hardwood less susceptible to moisture and more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood.

The Installation Process

At Metro Floors, we have the expertise to install engineered hardwood flooring over concrete slabs with precision and care. Here's a glimpse into our installation process:

  1. Preparation: We start by ensuring the concrete slab is clean, level, and free from any moisture issues. Proper moisture testing is crucial to prevent future complications.
  2. Moisture Barrier Installation: To safeguard against moisture infiltration, we lay down a moisture barrier, such as a quality underlayment or vapor retarder, before proceeding with the flooring installation.
  3. Adhesive Application: Instead of nailing down the hardwood planks, we use a specialized adhesive specifically designed for bonding wood to concrete surfaces. This ensures a secure and long-lasting installation.
  4. Floating Installation Option: In some cases, we may opt for a floating installation method, where the engineered hardwood planks are attached to each other rather than directly to the concrete. This offers additional flexibility and minimizes the risk of moisture-related issues.
