RE: Concrete Slab on Grade

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I typically use a 10 mil vapor barrier below 3" of sand whenever I have 
finished material or future finish material on the floor. I believe you 
need a vapor barrier under most floor finishes to get a guarantee on the 
finish material. This includes epoxy, paint, carpet, tile, etc.

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.
