Hardwood glued directly to raidiant-heat slab??
 
I have about 1300 ft of hardwood to put down and I have a slab with radiant heat (hydronic tubes embedded in slab). Has anyone done this without first putting down a wood subfloor? I found a glue that is recommended specifically for hardwood to radiant concrete substrate. Any sugggestions will be much appreciated! I'm in NM and humidity shouldn't be an issue.

What is the temp that the radiant is set at?

Hi High,

You say hardwood, so I assume it's 3/4" solid as apposed to engineered hardwood? If that's the case my answer is no. The traditional 3/4" has to be nailed.

The water temp is between 110-120 F; however, we will keep the ambient temp between 62-72 F.

The hardwood we chose is 3/8 inch solid teak.
