Installing Hardwood Flooring on Concrete Flooring, Condo
Although I've installed and sold hardwoods I don't consider myself an expert. Before you do anything you need to find what the manufacturer has to say about this type of installation. It is obviously an engineered wood and the color and/or species of the wear layer is cherry. What brand and which series is it?
OK, I think there's a misunderstanding concerning your substrate. That 1" of "concrete" is probably not concrete. Most likely it's gypsum, the best known brand is Gypcrete. If so there's special products and procedures as outlined in the wood makers instructions.
You will not be installing plywood over gypsum or concrete. Moisture content is always a concern, but again you need to read the directions.
Flooring reps at the store....? Do you mean a real flooring store or a big box?
