Bamboo Flooring - Glue or Float


Putting in about 500 sq ft in my condo in Florida. 2nd story untit, concrete floor.

Would you float or glue this down?

What do the instructions say? If this is actually a floating floor, you float it.
It would help if you supplied some actual details of what floor you have.

If you trying to decide between a float or glue down flooring product - I would go floating.

I am also putting down bamboo floors on concrete and it was suggested to me by the company to put down a 5/8" OSB or plywood subfloor and then nail/staple the floor down. This was a tongue and groove (non-float) product. Good luck
