Long plank solid wood on bitumen sub-floor

    I have just bought a second floor flat (built 1950s) which appears to have a bitumen-sealed concrete sub-floor (pic attached). My partner is Danish and we are looking for the Scandinavian look of room-length long-plank solid floorboards (ideally pine) throughout. Would this be possible? What underlay / adhesive would be ideal for this?

    A few flooring guys have said it's not possible without really investigating what we are asking. I reckon that's either because they are correct or they don't think it's worth the hassle.

    We have been recommended to use Sika glue but this was not from a flooring specialist.

    Any advice / recommendations would be appreciated. We are based in Manchester and would be happy to be pointed in the direction of a straight talking skilled tradesman.

    Hope you can help.

    Looks like asphalt that.
    you can have engineered wood floated on Timbermate excel underlay.
    Look at V4 , Kahrs and woodpecker
