Cork flooring

I am getting closer to putting in a cork floor for my living room/kitchen area. My question for those that have done this-
did you use the cork underlayment? Or rather did you glue the tile or plank to the wood underneath?
Seems like underlayment of cork and plastic together has been used residentially but I am not sure if necessary to have one or both in the Airstream.

My International had a one-piece OSB floor. With no seams to worry about, I used a water-based contact cement and glued the tiles right to the OSB. I didn't roll them, but I definitely would if I did it again.

I used 1' x 2' tiles with plain edges and had very little waste. If you use interlocking tiles, the waste goes up dramatically.

correct me if I em wrong.
And may I be so bold, as to say:
if you glue any wood flooring albeit cork,oak, pine
maple, down to excisting sub floor, are you
not asking for problems? and voiding any warrenty?
just my 4 cents ..

I doubt that he has to sweat much over the warrenty on his 1982 coach. What sort of "problems" do you forsee?

Cool This I've heard...

ALANSD

I'm somewhat envious of you and, Pahaska, as the two of you are at a stage I'd like to be...cork flooring~!~

I'll say this..When I was researching the project, I was told or got the impression that, it would be necessary to run a sander over the subfloor first before applying the glue..(to get a good clean base)
Since I haven't done that yet, I'll deferr to others as to what they may have found to have worked..

Like to see the finis project~!~

ciao

Most of the cork I have considered is glue down, although there are some click together types available. I am waiting for warmer weather time to do the install.
