Q: I live in a cement slab, small ranch house. Currently we have carpeting with padding on most of the floors except for the kitchen and bathroom. I would like to rip out the carpet and lay some planks down on the floor (much like in the attached photograph - larger pic below) and paint them with white porch paint. Can anyone tell me if I need to put a barrier between the cement floor and the wooden planks or if I am simply asking for trouble?
