Do I Need Moisture Barrier over Terrazzo (Eng. Wood Flooring)
As the long title says--we're installing Armstrong oak engineered HW in our kitchen. The original floor is terrazzo and we aren't sure that we have to install a vapor barrier first. Other adjacent areas had vinyl sheet flooring laid as a barrier, then the HW was glued onto that.
However, in the kitchen the contractor has already installed cabinets and our allowances are pretty tight. So if we don't need a vapor barrier, it will be helpful. OTOH I don't want to install $1200 worth of flooring and have a problem!
Any feedback appreciated.
