I don't like the look of laminates compared to wood, but I have a concrete slab and can't afford the expensive installation process of putting in a solid hardwood floor. Do all engineered floors have the option of a floating glue-together installation, or are they just glue-down?
It does not matter if slab is below grade, Concrete will produce moisture, you must have a Vapor barrier. A real hardwood floor would probably be no more than this prefinish floor.
The simple answer is yes. It, however is not that easy to do. It has to go together like the early days laminates that had to be glued and clamped. You can get the clamp straps pretty cheap through harbor freight. Make sure you use a 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 underlayment that provides moisture barrier if that is a below ground level application. Home Depot has a book called flooring 1-2-3 that will help a lot for showing you how to do this. Hope this helps.
