Plywood subfloor for Red Oak Flooring Installation – Avondale

Some wood flooring installations require the prior addition of a plywood subfloor over the concrete slab.

View of the St. Johns River from Avondale homeDan’s Floor Store installed 400 square feet of plywood subfloor in an Avondale home.

This work was in preparation for a weave-in rift and quarter sawn solid Red Oak wood floor installation, with sand and finish project.

First we lay down a 6 mil thick layer of Visqueen moisture barrier along with lap cement. We carefully roll out the plastic moisture barrier to cover the concrete slab after laying tar down with a trowel.

Next we carry in our sheets of 3/4″ CDX plywood to serve as subfloor. We cut the the plywood to fit according to the American Plywood Association / Engineered Wood Association and National Wood Flooring Association standards

We fasten each sheet of plywood with our Hilti DX2 nailer gun. This gun shoots 1 1/2″nails thru the plywood and into the concrete. This step really fastens our plywood securely to the concrete slab!

In a few weeks we will return to our client’s home and weave-in and install, then later sand and finish the Red Oak flooring installation. Here’s our link to our article about about the installation of the rift and quarter sawn Red Oak hardwood flooring.
