glue or nail?

I have a problem. We just removed a floating floor due to water damage. Now, we're at concrete, but don't want another floater. My favorite new floor is 5/16, but all my spaces underneath doorjambs, etc., are about 3/4". I figure I can make up the difference with underlayment of the right thickness, but that leaves me with 2 questions.

How do I attach the underlayment to concrete?

Should I do glue or nail?

Try offset thresholds.

I am sorry Matt. I think I had a brain cramp. Upon re-reading your post, I realize that my original reply meant no sense.

For some reason I was only thinking about the transition to another flooring surface, where a threshold that is thicker on one side will work in uneven applications.

I would visit "hardwood guys" website for an answer, but I would see no problem with putting down underlayment.

You could use shoe moulding to cover the gaps along the baseboards, but then you still have the problem with the bottom of the doors.

Sorry I am not of any useful help.
