Glue-down solid wood flooring, as the name suggests is solid wood flooring which has been produced with the intention of being fitted using the glue-down method of installation. Glue-down solid wood flooring installation involves the use of a bonding agent or adhesive, which is applied directly to the subfloor and can be used over either concrete or wooden subfloors.
That said, if you are planning to lay glue-down solid wood flooring over a concrete subfloor you are strongly advised to lay some form of damp proofing to make sure that no damp rises up into your new floor.
