Hi there folks, been a long time lurker but now signed up as I need a little advise.
In my new house I will be laying an engineered oak flooring which will be glued down across all the down stairs which has 2 bases. Most of the house is concrete with has very solid,original, thin and possibly asbestos tiles while the other half is floor boards.
Due to the possible asbestos I don't want to lift the tiles. They are very firmly fixed and removal would mean chipping it all up.
I'm assuming my best bet for a solid floor throughout would be to lay 18mm t&g chipboard??
If this is the best bet should I leave the chipboard floating and glue the flooring to the chipboard or should the chipboard also be fixed to the tiles/solid floor??
The floor isn't perfectly level, will the chipboard solve some of this problem or do I need to screed the floor first with some self level?
