Subject: Concrete Slab on Grade


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.
