Do condos need plywood subfloor under engineered wood for sound insulation? In the middle of a project to replace carpet, and condo guys keep stalling the project coz we aren't installing a subfloor.

I just installed bamboo in my condo and did the sub-floor: from what I gathered it's not optional and helps them to level the floor; if it's not level you'll deal with warping and separation etc.

What was under the carpet or was it a magic carpet?

Just foam pads and concrete. The carpet must have been laid down before the building went condo, so it got grandfathered in.

Your downstairs neighbors will thank you for doing it right

SC1: yeah, but everywhere I look, it doesn't even sound like plywood is used for sound insulation! It's always cork and foam that people use (which I am). This is what is confusing me about these rules.

D2: was the bamboo floor glued or nailed down? My floors are tongue in groove/floating. I'd thought this wouldn't be a concern with floating floors?

Hey @op they are floating click bamboo as well; still required a sub-floor. Bumps the price obviously but really is necessary and you will be so much happier with the result.

Just installed bamboo engineered flooring over subfloor. Was tongue and groove but glued it - for best results, always glue.
