Re: Raised garage slab

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark,
 
The system that Dennis described is what I've used.  You should have a waterproof membrane under the topping slab, perimeter curbs under the garage walls, and positive slope of the entire floor out the garage door -- we had a grated trench drain just outside the door because the driveway sloped toward the garage.
