Basement Sub Floor Systems

If you're finishing your basement floor, there are four common methods used by contractors and do-it-yourself homeowners to install carpeting:

  1. Install the carpet directly on the concrete.
  2. Build a wood subfloor on the concrete, then install the carpet on top.
  3. Lay down a plastic and chipboard sub floor system underneath the carpet.
  4. Place a waterproof sub floor underneath the carpet.

Traditional carpeting, wood products, adhesives, and other organic materials are inappropriate materials to install directly on a basement concrete floor.

Concrete is a porous, absorbent material. If there is any moisture or water in the dirt outside of your home, this concrete is going to let it pass through.

This moisture will slowly make its way through the concrete, eventually entering your home as water vapor.

If you have organic carpeting or wood on your floor, it will soak up that moisture. Eventually, these materials will grow mold, and wood floors may warp and buckle.

Plastic and chipboard sub flooring sounds like a better idea in theory, but it comes with one major design flaw.

When installed, each floor tile has about ⅛" of chipboard exposed directly to the basement floor. This will take on moisture just as easily as any other sub floor material.

Of course, if your have a leak from your washing machine, water heater, pipes, or through the foundation, these materials will also be ruined.

ThermalDry® Basement subfloor tiles

ThermalDry® Floor Matting, available in Colorado by Silver River Basement Systems, is an appropriate sub floor installing wall-to-wall carpeting or padding in a finished basement. These award-winning interlocking tiles create a vapor barrier on your concrete floor that will keep humidity from affecting your custom carpeting on top. These tiles are compatible with tack strips, and should outlast several generations of basement carpeting..

As an added benefit, ThermalDry® floor tiles have a special design that lifts them off the basement floor. This creates a thermal break underneath that will make the surface of your ThermalDry® tiles 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below!

In the event of a basement flood, normal carpeting will not generally be as easy to dry as our finished basement floor systems. However, it will provide you with a world of options when you're finishing your basement!

Wood Sub Flooring = Mold

Traditional basement finishing uses a wood subfloor with carpet on top.When this wood sub floor gets damp, it will rot, buckle, and grow mold.

As humidity rises up naturally through the concrete floor, it accumulates under and these floors.
