There is no reason to glue down engineered hardwood floor to an underlayment. This is just for initial aesthetics. The glue will NEVER last (in a residential setting). The only thing the glue will do is give you fits and make your install seem tighter. Within weeks or months the glue will come loose and you will have a floating floor. Nothing wrong with ...

You probably missed "the best option for reducing noise to below" if you put down new subfloors and didn't put insulation under them (assuming you actually removed the old subfloor and had open joists.) Your next-best option would be to blow in insulation from below. If you are already committed to nail-down flooring, I don't think the underlayment will ...

On its website it says 8-10 hours. However it is not for the application you used it for. It is for gluing wood to things. Not for gluing foam/felt/whatever to concrete. Your underlayment has basically formed a bubble underneath. The wood glue needs a lot of air to dry - hence wood glue there will usually be a lot of air available. Now that the outside ...

In this case it is highly unlikely that the actual brand of glue matters. Use your generic brand glue. Honestly I'm surprised it's a glue down floor at all. Usually the laminate floors are floating - at least in my experience...

I don't know what Green Glue is other than it appears to form a gasket of sorts. My thoughts would be to try insulation along with layering some dis-similar materials to avoid conductive transfer. I'd suggest a sandwich of XPS foam, topped with cork underlayment, then your finish floor (which, ideally, could be dry-core subfloor panels topped with ...
