I want to install a wood plank floor on a cement slab. I have been told that in order to install I will need to put a sub floor of either 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch. My question is what is the best way to install the sub floor to concrete?

Installing subfloor on concrete

There are many useful hardwood flooring installation sites on the internet. Go to, one such site, for tips for installing subfloor on concrete. Concrete should be well aged but you should still use a moisture barrier. Hardwood is not recommended for installation on concrete below grade such as in basements.
