Hardwwod flooring

I just purchased a home at Rancho San Miguel in Walnut Creek. We are going to put hardwood floors in the bedrooms and hallway. Not sure yet whether to glue right into the slab, or use a sub floor. Are there any recommendations for hardwood installers familiar with Eichlers?

Thanks

Your best bet is a floating floor, you have radiant heat, plumbing, drainage and electrical all in or under your slab. If you ever need to get to it it is easier to take up a floating floor. also you should always have a pressure test of the radiant heat piping before putting any type of flooring down.

CJK,

Thanks for the advice. It seems having a floating or sub floor would have it's advantages, despite the loss of a few inches. Any suggestion on who would be qualified to do the pressure test on the radiant heating system?

Thanks
