    Most are 3/4" thick, although some manufacturers also offer a “thin- profile” solid that is 5/16" thick.While solid hardwood flooring is typically nailed to a subfloor, thin-profile solid flooring can be glued down over concrete and other hard surfaces.

    All depends if it's to be layed on plain floor or on wood joists. In the first case, you can use floating wood garment wicht is approximately 1 cm. In this case, it's recommended to use a layer of insulation underneath, so that you floor will be insulated thermically and phonically. On the second case, it come in several thickness, but most commonly around 2 cm. And you'll need to apply some thick insulation between the joists.
