RE: Consider finishing the concrete

We have wood flooring over concrete in our bedroom. There are no sleepers. The wood is tongue and groove and was installed over a vapor barrier. The floor is glued board to board and "floats" which means it is free to expand and contract independently of the concrete.

We did have to have our slab tested for moisture by the installer before they would warranty the floor. The vapor barrier under the concrete has to be intact to prevent moisture from coming through the slab. We were okey. Apparently some homes are not.

I have no experience with basements as we don't have those where I live. They may be too wet for wood installation.

There is also tile available now that looks like wood.
