 Post subject: Wood floor over radiant heat in a Kitchen
PostPosted: Tue Aug 31, 2004 12:28 pm 
Hi, I'm a homeowner gut renovating my 97 year old kitchen. I'm putting in Radiant heat. What's the best choice for wood flooring in this situation? Quartersawn? Engineered? Bamboo? Also, any idea if it would be worthwhile to replace the subfloor with one of the Aluminum-lined subfloors designed for radiant? As it is, my plywood subfloor is far from level, and will need extensive levelling. Thanks!

Yes, quartersawn is preferred, but there are engineered products suitable for radiant heat installations, but not all. From our research it seems all bamboos can go over radiant heat. Best to check the actual specs of each manufacturer. Can't help with radiant heat applications but there are many guys at the following site that are more familiar..
