I did notice that the wood was on the damp side under the
vinyl....... I'm guessing condensation??? It is airing out with
a good breeze.
Has anyone treated the wood prior to flooring??? Like a
Thompson's or similar product??
Should I put down a vapor barrier before the laminate?
No vapor barrier, traps moisture.
Look along your lower trim, may have moisture seeping in. I have not treated the floor in any of the ones I have done. (6 or so)
