I have a home built in 1918. The foundation is pier and beam. We are remodling the kitchen. What would be the best flooring. We are thinking about floating laminate wood. Can we put tile? Any help will be appreciated.

RE: best flooring for pier and beam foundation

The only concerns I would have is moisture and if your floor is flat. Most floors are not flat and for floating floors there is a limit to how "out of flat" it can be. This varies by manufacturer. Make sure that any moisture from the ground below your kitchen has a proper moisture barrier and insist that moisture readings are taken before installation (a good flooring store will be able to do this). Otherwise, I think you are good to go.
