Greetings HT aficionados,
i can hear you thinking "Oh, no, not another insulation question"
before you get bored, i would like to say that I have searched extensively this forum, and other forums for insulating basement floors
i know about dricore, delta-fl, etc
but i still wanted to bounce an idea off you. i heard someone recently questioning this whole idea, that there should be something with "dimples" on the floor so that if there is any water/moisture, first it won't damage the floor, and second it will dry off and it won't contribute to mold, etc.
here is the question. What is that force that will help evaporate the moisture/water? Air? In order for air to dry off something wet, it has to move. What will make the air move? Basements are the lowest point in a house and there are no drafts there. I might be wrong, anyone?
so, here is my idea. OSB or plywood boards glued to the concrete floor and to each other, and then the laminate flooring on top. Glueing the boards to the concrete will definitely prevent the water/moisture to collect under.
why will this not work?
thanks very much for your time
