A foam underlayment is reserved for a click and lock floating floor. Engineered floors instead require a 6 mil polyethylene layer or 15# roofing felt or resin paper. This will help block moisture from below and help prevent squeaks.

My professional installer glued down with no underlay and we love it! I am not sure when you are nailing. If you are on laying on a sub board and doing a nail down (which I will be doing next on my second floor) I would most likely lay and underlay. I am not a professional just my opinion. Good luck!

With padding, none; this flooring is not designed to be used with a floating floor underlayment, which padding would be used for. On concrete, a moisture cured urethane-based flooring adhesive should be used to install it. The Roberts R1509 would be a good choice. Home Depot should carry this adhesive and many others that fall under this category.

Home Legend does not have a recommended shade. One would need to self-match with a in store sample of the Minwax product.

How long would these kind of wood floors be expected to last? What maintenance is needed to maintain their look and usability?

As engineered wood, is it possible to sand them down and re-stain them if needed in 30 or 40 years? Is it thick enough to do more than once? If there is a gouge how can it be repaired? Perhaps a wood filler, then sand and stain? Is this type of stain available for purchase separately for these kinds of repairs?

Thanks!!

I want to match the height of the ceramic tile in our kitchen at 1". What underlayment should I use to make up the difference?

My sub floor is 3/4" T&G OSB. I was thinking 1/2" plywood to make up the difference but wasn't sure what type. Do I need hardwood plywood like birch or will pine be ok? Would OSB work? Sanded or unsanded plywood?

HI Dave,
We glued down. We have ceramic tile too. The finished result was perfect but we also used a professional installer. Sorry we could not help.
