Vapor barrier for floating cork floor
I live in Peoria, Illinois (Zone 5A). I’m installing a floating cork floor over an upstairs plywood subfloor. Nearly every website I see preaches on the importance of using a vapor barrier under floating floors, but I’ve also seen vehement advice against it. The planks I’m installing have a thin cork layer on the bottom, so I really shouldn’t use a vapor barrier right?
