My hall has existing solid wood parquet flooring which isn't very nice. It's stuck down the old way with tar. I want to lay some laminate flooring over the top of the parquet. Obviously I will put down some foam underlay first. My question is. Should I put down some plastic VCL over the parquet? Is there a danger I might seal in any damp by doing this. The Parquet is pretty solid and damp free at the moment.
