Forum Title: Basement Floor
Hey fellas, finishing my basement and not sure what to do about the floor. I am lucky to not really have any issues with water getting in, however i will be putting a sump pump in just in case. Anyways, plan was to use either 3/4 inch or 1 inch rigid foam on the floor with taped seams, and 1 inch sleepers on top. I've researched and heard this is a great way to do a floor, and would maybe only need a vapor barrier if i use the 3/4 inch. However im wondering what if i put something really heavy down there? Maybe weight and exercise equipment? I know the foam has a good compression rating but i dont think it could handle that or a pool table. Should i attach the PT sleepers to the slab and foam board between them? Should i use a vapor barrier since the sleepers would be attached to the slab? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
