wood floors over concrete
We want to install a wood floor in our living room. The living room was an adddition to the house and was built on a concrete slab. In addition, there is a sliding glass door in the room that has the screen on the inside and is pretty low to the floor. We are afraid that the floor (with the necessary subfloor) will come up too high and that a reducer will not do enough to give it a truly finished look. Also, we have no idea which kid of wood we should consider. We want something that can handle heavy traffic and that works well over concrete. Someone told us we need to watch out for the way the wood is cut so that it expands only vertically, not horizontally. Can someone please help us and offer some suggestions?
