Hardwood Floor Installation In A Highrise Apartment
I have an apartment on the tenth floor in a highrise building with concrete slab floors. Currently, the floors are covered with carpeting. I think wall to wall carpet is unhealthy, impossible to really keep clean, harbors dust mites, and is just disgusting.
I have my heart set on finished in place, 3/4-inch, rift sawn, white oak floors. I do not like nor desire prefinished, engineered, or laminate flooring.
Obviously, there is no chance of moisture wicking up from below as found in typical house basements or ones built on concrete slabs. Does this negate moisture issues typical of wood flooring installed in those situations? I have seen many finished in place wood floors over concrete in older apartments similar to mine. I would like to educate myself on the best installation methods. Could someone please give me advice or direct me to where I could learn how to accomplish this type of installation?
Thank you so very much.
