Forum Title: Basement Floor - Sleepers?
I've got a concrete basement floor in a 70-year-old home that isn't quite level and not very flat... it has a some visible cracks and a bit of a hump in the middle. This is in Colorado, so cold temperatures and expansive soils. I have options.... one would be to rip out the entire 4 thick slab and have it re-poured. The other, which I think I'm going to use, is to lay down sleepers and build a subfloor on top. Here is the proposed design: - Pressure-treated 2x4 sleepers, 16 OC and around the perimeter of the basement. Shimmed to level. Glued and ramset into concrete. - 1 rigid foam glued to concrete between sleepers - both for insulation, as well as keeping cold air from hitting the concrete, avoiding mold. - 3/4 subfloor screwed/glued to sleepers. Anyone have any tips or changes before I jump in?? Thanks! Drew
