I have a home that was built in the mid 70's on a concrete slab. I've lived in the home for the last ten years and every winter (I live in northern Florida) I deal with a lot condensation on the windows when the temperature drops. The house was not vented at all and at the time I believed that the condensation was due to showers, cooking and the like. But we have started renovation the house I have noticed several things: If I put plastic down over the carpets to protect them, the carpets are damp after the plastic is removed. Where tile was removed standing water was found underneath. If plastic is laid on the bare concrete moisture forms underneath. Obviously I have moisture coming up through the slab. We want wood floors, so we absolutely need to put down a sealer. I've even thought about thin-setting kerdi fabric to the floor. Not sure if I could glue wood floor to that.
The floor manufacture recommends a Bostic product that is an all in one glue and sealer, but due to the cost of the floor, I want to be sure. Is there a product that can be spread onto the entire floor and then I could use the sealer/glue on top of that?
