Moisture under engineered wood floating floor

Hey everyone,

Does anybody have a photo or a link to a photo that shows how wet a floor can look after moisture has built up on top of a concrete floor inbetween the underlayment and the concrete?

I can do you one better....look at your screen, rub your finger on it. That's how much water can be there.

Understood and agree. The question is though does anyone have any photos of there experience with moisture buildup. I have seen how much it can build up. Like wrapping your body in a plastic bag and baking in the sun and then taking it off. I would like to know if someone has documented their experience.

Hi Treble,
Here is a link with all kinds of concrete issues, but at the end it does talk about wood over concrete. Hope it helps.
