If the flooring is going to be Stapled down over a wood subfloor:
It is recommended to lay 15 lb black felt paper
over the subfloor first to retard any moisture transfer from the subfloor into the wood flooring overlapping the seams by 4- 6 inches. The proper flooring nailer used with this flooring is shown here
If the flooring is going to be Direct Glued down:
It is recommended to use the proper adhesive, trowel size and spread rate. We highly recommend that the concrete slab be tested for excessive moisture first by taping 3’ x 3’ pieces of plastic down in several areas first then waiting 48 hours or more to see if condensation builds up under the plastic if condensation is present the excessive moisture problem would have to be corrected first before installing any wood flooring. Moisture emissions can vary at any time during the year.
If the flooring is going to be Floated over a wood subfloor: It is recommended to use the Silent Stride felt underlayment pad or Cork underlayment (shown in the view cart page once a Mannington floor has been chosen).
If the flooring is going to be Floated over a concrete slab: It is recommended laying 4-6 plastic over the concrete slab first, them the Aqua barrier foam pad or Cork underlayment (shown in the view cart page once a Mannington floor has been chosen).
