I want to put carpeting over a concrete basement floor. The concrete has
some random cracks in addition to the stress relief cuts. The cracks are up
to 1/16" wide. The house is 5 years old. The basement is very dry.
Do I need to patch or repair the random cracks before I have the pad and
I just this week installed Ceramic tile over a 1/8 inch crack. I am just
hoping it does not get bigger because if it does the tile will crack. This
crack goes from one side of my house to the other, it starts in the kitchen,
goes all the way threw the living room, threw the master bedroom closet and
threw the master bath. In the Kitchen and master bath there was vinyl
flooring and you could see the crack very much but in the living room and
closet where there was carpet you could not see the crack at all. I say
carpet over it and do not give it a second thought as I can no imagine a
crack smaller than 3/16 of an inch showing threw carpet.
