My MIL just bought a condo, and has decided that she wants hard wood floors put into the two bedrooms. OK, so the carpet had been ripped out, and a friend of mine who does interior designs said he would hook me up with someone to do the work.
Well, I don't know a whole lot about laying floors, but I do know a bit, and you can't just lay hardwood directly onto concrete.
Here is where the questions come in. I wan't to know a bit about what needs to be done so that I can sus if the person recommended to me is up to the task or not.
I know that you will need to lay down something to nail the hardwood into. I assume its plywood?? Would you need to stick it to the concrete with some sort of industrial adhesive? As this is a condo, I don't think you can use a concrete nail or tapcon.
I don't want to hire someone who doesn't know what they are doing, but not knowing myself makes it a little harder. Any help is appreciated.
