Concrete Slab on Grade

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello Everyboby!

I am in need of your valuable opinions on supposedly a simple question.
Do you provide sand/polyethylene under a ground supported concrete floor slab, or do you provide compacted subbase material? When should each be used? What are the pros and cons of each?
Thanks a million in advance.
