Engineered wood questions
We're planning to install Shaw's Vicksburg handscraped engineered floors in our kitchen and family room. Install will be over a concrete slab. We already have this product in the entryway, installed by the previous owner, it is glued down. We've decided to glue down for the new install to keep them consistent. They won't touch, but will be separated by only a small tile transition. Close enough to notice differences in height, sound, and feel underfoot.
So, the flooring store suggests Bostik's Best claiming it is the best for this application as it has a built in moisture barrier. We're in Dallas area so we get some extremes Los in the teens in winter, well over one hundred in summer with high humidity. I've read online that Mapei 990 is better. Can anyone give me pros and cons for each?
At this point, we haven't decided who we'll have do the install. We've only spoken to this local flooring store, he has the best price on the material, but his install price seems high. We have a GC that we've worked with
before that we want to get a quote from or we might do it ourselves.
Any help would be appreciated.
